Excellent experience! Bus was comfy, driver was great and super informative. Would have loved more time at the stops but we covered a lot of ground and loved everything about the tour. Highly recommend!

Mike was our driver. He was very good. He shared stories and information. It was sometimes hard to hear him because other travelers on our bus were conversing too loudly.

An amazing tour that exceeded all expectations . The driver guide was brilliant, so knowledgable about the area and extremely funny too! . We had a wonderful day.
