Excellent, and great value
This tour was excellent. We liked the idea of a small group tour and it was great value. John is an exceptional guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm for sharing, is outstanding. We were always well looked after, had any questions answered and enjoyed chatting with John. Our vehicle was always clean and ready to go and we always knew what our agenda was going to be.
