We had a wonderful time with Poul! He was fantastic! We had great communication prior to our private tour knowing where and when to meet him. He was also very knowledgeable and personable. He went out of his way to assist our dear friend who is elderly and in a wheelchair. We were able to see all the places we wanted to plus some extras based on Poul's recommendations including our lunch spot. We would definitely recommend him and would use him again. Thanks again for the wonderful tour we enjoyed!
