My Mother and I had a GREAT time. Everything was perfect. The driver did what every he could to help.
This was a great excursion. Our guide Eugene was informative, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. We saw a beautiful sunset and tha stargazing was amazing. Highly recommended!
Very nice trip, driver was very knowledgeable and engaged with his occupants. Took pics for us and serviced everyone with a smile.
