Marie J was awesome. I ended up doing his tour alone as my husband bailed at the last minute. She kept checking up on me. It was in my bucket list to come here and she made extra special by being so passionate and fun. I would do it again myself and will definitely recommend it to my friends and family.

James was a wonderful tour guide. gave us all sorts of info that was interesting and entertaining. We would love definitely recommend this tour.

Our guide, whose last name was Raven, was that absolute best part! The stories were great, but the knowledge and research were next level!

Cindy was wonderful and very informative. Can't wait to come back with my husband!
