A Recent Review of this tour

This is the best way to experience an area on a tour, and Gabriel was perfect in his knowledge of the area, the history, the sites and even the traffic. His van was nicer than my car, and was able to transport my whole party in safety and style. The other nice thing about this Tours by Locals tour is Gabriel's ability to cater to our groups interest and needs as we travelled. Highly recommended.
