A Recent Review of this tour

Really excellent tour - very knowledgeable and information presented in a most interesting fashion. Delightful young lady who spoke excellent English and could answer all our questions. Brand new air conditioned car made a big difference on a hot day, and the driver even came back to our ship to deliver binoculars that I had left behind. You would be hard pressed to find a better guide. I would recommend without reservation.
