Benjamin was a very knowledgeable and funny guide. We were with him for the entire tour and he made sure that the people going on the luncheon cruise knew exactly were to go when he dropped them off. We would not hesitate to refer him as a guide.

What a fantastic couple of hours. Informative and educational! I had so much time to chat and ask questions to get far more of an understanding to this beautiful place. Highly recommend

Loved the intimate experience we were fortunate to have! Dee was super knowledgeable.

I liked that I could pause the tour and return to it later.

The stories were cool and the dinner was delicious
