Amazing Tour! Stunning sights and awesome guides. We had such a great time. We were a large group, but easily accommodated by Adventure Co. The location was amazing, the weather was perfect, and the sights were beautiful.
The company was recommended to us by a friend, and now I can see why! It was certainly one of the highlights of our vacation. The guides were all very friendly, experienced, and professional which made it a real treat.
I was visiting from out of state with my family, most of whom had never experienced something like this before, and we thought it would be a good idea - we're sure glad that we did! The experienced guides made sure that the whole day went smoothly, and luckily for us the weather was great. Highly recommended!
