Wow! So much positive energy and passion for what they do! My tour guide was informative and pleasant (I would have loved to keep her for our whole visit) at the initial meeting point we were greeted by a gentleman who lent my son his personal umbrella to block the son. Good people who enjoy what they do. my 9 year old son retained so much from the tour referencing back to things he learned throughout the trip. I would recommend this tour for everyone.
