5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

What a fun day. Took some great shots. Victor took us to places we would have never found by ourselves. This tour is great for people with little point and shoot cameras (like me) and those with cameras with all the fancy bells and whistles. Its a little pricey, but don't let that discourage you. You will not be disappointed.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

We enjoyed the day very much. Our needs and preferences were asked about often. Our guide, Michael, knew the area well and did a great job with background information, communication and checking with participants. We loved seeing the area with someone who really knew it. Highly recommend this tour.
