Robert was an excellent guide. The itinerary, timing, comfort of the van, information and entertaining personality it was simply wonderful. Our hotel was on the pickup list as well so the entire tour was really perfect for us. Had we had more days we would have done more extensive but thus was a wonderful sampling of multiple attractions that were interesting to us. Great job!
