    What a great experience! We had taken the traditional moonlight tour on the bus and thought we would try something different. Tom Melo was an exceptional guide. His knowledge of the monuments, coupled with his lifetime experiences as a resident of the area, combined for an informative, memorable and enjoyable evening. The intimacy of the electric cart and personalized explanations was exceptional, and far more relaxing. The incremental increase in cost was well worth the experience!

    Sam, our conductor, was informed and knowledgeable. It would be great if he had more knowledge and facts but still we thought he did a great job overall. I only suggest you repair your vehicles. One should take pride in their company and want for the best. I feel the price point was good so you should invest some profit back into your vehicles. Did you not receive small business covid funds from the government? Even if you did, if I had the business, I would find me a custom repair shop and make some new business partners. This is just a suggestion. Thank you and God bless.

    Kevin was literally the best guide we could have asked for! He was full of all the facts and super fun at the same time. I wish he could be my best friend! He even gave us some tips for the rest of our trip on what else we should see and do. Would definitely recommend to everyone and anyone! (Just be sure to empty your bladder ahead of time, toilets are scarce on the tour…… NOT Kevin’s fault!!)
