We had a wonderful day on the tour. Chris our driver/guide was top class, very knowledgeable and informative. He went out of his way to ensure our day was one we will never forget. The scenery was breathtaking and were you to ask me if you should go on this tour my answer would be “don’t miss it, you’ll have a day you’ll never forget”.

Fun day. Alison was a great guide and made us all feel like family.
