Great trip friendly knowledgeable staff who responded quickly to any questions mainly the only problem was people weren't ready so it was running a little behind schedule . but We got to see everything on the agenda so very happy with the experience .

The tour was great, picked up and dropped off at our hotel which made it very convenient. Our guide (Steve) was phenomenal, very accommodating, he was like a walking encyclopedia of fun facts and was enthusiastic about his job. Dinner was great too.
