A Recent Review of this tour

Paul is knowledgeable, succinct, humorous and keeps it interesting. He thoughtfully kept to shady areas on an above normal hot day and made certain that everyone in the party caught up to him before speaking. His English was clear even for hearing challenged people in the group (me) who were sometimes at the back. Great job Paul, thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
