A Recent Review of this tour

Keith was a great guide. We had bad weather but he always had a plan for something else for us to do and was flexible in accommodating our particular interests. He was very knowledgeable about everything on the tour and took fabulous photographs. He was very considerate and dropped us off close to the venue when the weather was bad, found local treats for us to eat, and always had a smile. He was also helpful in recommending places to stay as we planned the trip. I would highly recommend Keith.
