A Recent Review of this tour

The best 2 days we have ever spent with ANY guide and we have had some really great guides! David understood 3 year old kid needs and 45 year old son Clan history dreams. USE DAVID! He will work with you to the limits of his ability. Always went the extra mile and sometimes extra 200 miles to see that we got the trip of our dreams. He was the best!
