I was traveling alone on this trip, but my tour guide never made me feel that I am alone and new to visit such a beautiful destination. She was a lovely lady always there to help and guide. She answered my questions with a smile on her face. I also enjoyed group meals. People on the bus were so friendly and created lots of fun inside and outside of the bus. I loved and enjoyed every single day of this tour but I love wildlife that's why I enjoyed a swamp tour the most. Yes, another Tabasco Sauce Factory tour was full of taste, fun and natural beauty of Avery Island. I found this trip an excellent way to meet new people of different cultures and making them a part of the memories. Keep up good services. Thanks
