I didn’t receive my password to start the tour and contacted action tour guide and received the password. After that initial confusion the tour was very good. I highly recommend it. It was very informative. The only suggestion is more advance warning when making turns as we were in an RV and it takes more time to slow down and make turns. The representative was very helpful to send the password.
