This was an unforgettable experience. Marty was an amazing tour guide. All of the spots he took us to were carefully thought out to provide the best views. Marty was knowledgeable about the area, wildlife, and the local history. He was also respectful of everyone’s limits and made sure we were all safe and fine to continue hiking. Would highly recommend booking this service. The pickup and drop off was perfect and the lunch provided was delicious. There were also a ton of snacks and water available. If you have this opportunity - do it!
