Steve was an excellent guide for this trip! We spent just enough time in each stop and Steve was very knowledgeable about the areas we passed and the towns we stopped in. Would definitely recommend!

Lee's commentary was interesting and informative. A long drive, sufficient breaks for stretching, toilets and photos. Questions cheerfully answered. Worth doing.
