Our group enjoyed the tour with Darrin very much. Darrin is knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor. He is also a safe driver that's important to us. We learnt a lot about the rainforest, various species of trees, wildlife, volcanic crater lakes, etc. Also, the breakfast we had was absolutely delicious, best scones we ever had and the coffee was just great. A day well spent.
