Colleen was an awesome guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and she has a great personality. Colleen volunteered to take our photos at each stop. Before we left the tour she suggested we visit the east rim which we did the next day. Our entire group appreciated her suggestion and we were glad we made the trip. Colleen is a definite asset to the company.
