We had a very interesting and informative day with our guide mr snake and his very good and safe driver. He arrived on time and planned and organised the day very well. He was friendly, pleasant and informative with interesting facts and local knowledge and was happy to accommodate our vegetarian meal request. He was also considerate of my wife's back problems throughout the day and seeked assistance were possible to reduce the amount of walking she had to do. He also provided free water, drinks, cold wipes and snacks throughout the day. It was a very long day but worth the effort. If there was any slight criticism it is the very ambitious number of stops and limited time at each stop. That suited us as we would rather see more areas and have less time than other similar tours but it is a consideration for anyone considering booking this tour. Thanks again for a wonderful day.
