    So weather wasn’t looking great in the morning and my husband and I were a bit worried - but the trip still happened with a bit of rain and we loved every minute of it. Even with rain there’s a different feeling and we really enjoyed the personal attention you get in small groups. Views were still great and we even took a dip (very cold). Our guide was extremely informative and we had great conversations. I highly recommend this!
