5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

The tour was fantastic. I think our tour guide was Thahn or Thang? (I'm sorry I'm not sure about the spelling, I apologize) I'm not sure about his name but he was very knowledgeable, funny, professional and just a really nice guy! He was waiting for us at our meeting spot in the morning so that was impressive that he was punctual. We left on time and returned on time, a wonderful tour guide.
