Tim was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. The tour is basically a half hour trip in a mini bus with interesting sites pointed out en route. The rest is free time in Richmond. There is an optional jail tour for an extra $5. We did have a short stop off at a cheese/chocolate shop called Wicked on the way.

It was such a pity it rained and it spoiled me seeing most of the place.

I was surprised we did not stop at the winery just outside Richmond or at Wicked Cheese. I could have booked a cheaper tour and would have had I known.
