Enjoyed our tour. So worth it compared to the stock trips the resorts offer. No picking up people from numerous resorts and getting a late start on the day. No waiting for a bus load of people to herd to a destination. No buffet that is picked over. Kathy enjoyed being the tour guide and it shows. Would use this service again.
