What people are saying about Somerset

Great day trip. Enough time at all 3 stops to fully enjoy the site. We had Steve M. As our guide and he was crazy knowledgeable! Sareef was our driver and was excellent...never feared for our life.

We did both the city and the skyline tours. Each was very informative and interesting but we particularly enjoyed the skyline tour. Very good value for money!

Wonderfull trip with a great guide Karen! there is not a lot of time to eat, thus bring your own food so you can eat om the coach!

All of it was incredible worth all its money paid for i would definitely do it again for sure.

Very informative and a great way to learn about and get around the city! 10/10
