Immediately upon meeting our guide Kevin, we knew it was going to be a great day. He was very energetic and enthusiastic about showing us his beautiful country. While the scenery was breathtaking, it was Kevin that made sure we were able to take in all the day had to offer, and it was far beyond our expectations. Kevin was informative, accommodating and a great driver to boot. We highly recommend that you book a tour with Kevin.
