This trip was long but well worth it. Our tour guide Bobby was great! He was timely, knowledgeable, super friendly and just fun. He came to pick us up in a nice, clean air conditioned van. The tour group was very small which we liked. We got to spot and take pictures along the way and the sights were just amazing. We also got to stop and eat and a bit of shopping. The weather was perfect and so was the tour. Highly recommend!

Just the right amount of time and information. Avery was a great guide, and the scenery was awesome. The trolly was a bit old with a bench seat for 3 slim people…we had the opposite. I did see there was a newer trolly with individual seats. Don’t know if that would make a difference? Overall a good value for the price and well organized.
