A Recent Review of this tour

We booked a full day tour with Sushma and totally enjoyed the experience. She was flexible, had good suggestions on things that would interest both my 15-year old daughter & I, and had interesting stories to tell along the way. She's truly mastered the art of engaging with her audience!
