Great trip with top guide!

We thought it might be too hot but a slight breeze off the water made conditions great. We saw lots of wading birds and learnt a little about the history and culture of the region while enjoying a decent bike ride and varying scenery. Me and my wife, who are bike riders but in our late 50s, strongly recommend this trip.
