My wife and I absolutely enjoyed this tour! Our tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable, humorous and made the whole trip really fun! The sights and views from the mountain top was stunning and the breakfast scones and BBQ lunch were really good. We rate this number 1 among the tours we did not that the others were no good – they were great too. Highly recommended! Well worth it!
