A Recent Review of this tour

Christoper was very pleasant and followed the program as described. This tour was basically just a drive to the Salt Mines and making sure that we got our tickets. He was very helpful in explaining sights along the way. He was most accommodating and dropped us off after the tour in the area that we wanted to go to.
