I loved the trip! Bruce and Tony were brilliant as guide and driver respectively. Without Bruce's entertaining skills it wouldn't have been the same, of that I'm sure! We had ample time to see the sights and the tips we were given by this experienced guide were truly useful

Our guide Manon was great! She was super knowledgeable, nice, and helpful. She talked us through the history of each stop and she made sure we had enough time to explore on our own.
