    The guide/driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour started on time and appeared to be relaxed as far as a schedule but took us to all the locations and ended on time. Very enjoyable.

    ‭1 (800) 987-9852‬ That’s the number on the website. After I booked my tour I had some questions. I left a message and it was returned quickly. I found the staff friendly and eager to help. Good Luck!

    Our buses hold 14-23 passengers. Average passenger count is usually about 8-12 on the 8 hour tour but some days are more busy than others. We can do private tours if you call us to schedule them.
