Exception Guide with broad and deep knowledge of the region
, Aug 2019
An excellent tour in every aspect. John was an extremely knowledgeable guide on a broad range of topics from the local cultures and history to the geography and biology of the region. Far more than I expected and a great value for money.
This was an exceptional tour. Great value for money. Our guide knew the history of the area thoroughly and was enthusiastic. His knowledge of and interest in the flora and fauna were fantastic and infectious. The only downside was the airport ride and this was not his fault. We did not go to hear the captain's view of President Obama!
