The driver was very nice and helpful but the car was not a Jeep or open safari drive as the advert promised but an old chevrolet. Also no offer of water or anything. The positive note that the tour is personal and therefore it will be only you with the driver to customize the places to see as you like

Tully was an excellent guide and showed us many hidden things that we would never have discovered on our own. Choosing the Sunrise Tour is highly recommended, so you have the fabulous nature to yourself. And we were also lucky enough to have Tully to ourselves, so we learned all the more about the life of the natives in the past and today. Thank you Tully!

It was an absolutely amazing trip and our guide John was a really good communicator of Native American culture and all that they have been and are exposed to by American culture. He was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area. We can highly recommend this tour
