We just did a private all day tour with Michael. Michael was professional, knowledgeable, and displayed a great sense of humor. Early on he communicated with us to find out what we wanted to see and do, offered suggestions, and had back up plans in case weather interfered. He picked us up at our hotel in a brand new Mercedes van. It snowed and rained off and on during our whole tour. Michael kept us engaged the whole time. We would definitely do another tour with him again. Douglas and Nancy
