A Recent Review of this tour

We found Andrew to be very knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited. While our visit was partially about family history as well as just seeing a part of the world we had never been to, he did a wonderful job weaving those two things together. He even went the extra mile and researched a probable ancestor and shared the history of the area during the time that our ancestors were here, which added a whole new dimension and really brought the area to life for us.
