We booked our tour only about 2 hours prior. We received an email immediately which detailed everything we needed to know. We arrived at the dedicated spot for pick up and in just minutes our tour guide arrived. The seats had a nice, Our guide was awesome. She chatted the whole time and told us about the cities and surrounding
The tour guide had so much knowledge and was very personable. I felt that the tour was a little pricey ($600.10 for the long tour). It was one of our favorite tours we have ever did. I guess you can\'t put a price on experience.
This has been on my bucket list! The smoothness of the online reservation, online text reminders, phone call from the owner to the actual ride was superb! We had the joy of our tour guide. He is so knowledgeable about the places we visit!
