Darren is a super awesome tourguide, I would like to give hime 5 stars review. He made the trip wonderful and interesting more. Unfortunately, I didn't have him three days , the last day we were change to other guy's group . He is not enthusiastic and even can't start each stop on time which he set the time himself. Thanks God I have a good for two days. A good Tourguide determines your trip good or not.
