We had a wonderful day with Andrew! What a fantastic tour guide. It was so nice to spend the day with someone from the area (he has lived here 35 years). He had great information to share with us not only about the scheduled sites, but about the places we passed by on the way. He really wanted our experience to be a good one. Highly recommend spending the day with him when choosing your tour!
