Our guide Brett was very knowledgeable and friendly. The trip was easy and comfortable. We went in January so the timing was good. If the weather had been warmer, I think you'd want to spend more time exploring outside than what is allowed on this particular 4-hour tour. Just keep that in mind when choosing your tour.
