This was such a nice day! Our tour guide was fun and shared alot of interesting facts and history. We lucked out with weather as it was gorgeous out, I would think the tour would be disappointing if the weather wasn't good and caused bad visibility up on the mountain.

Ross the tour guide was a gentleman and very funny , he made the trip so much fun , very enjoyable day out thanks again definitely use the coastal tour bus again

Highly recommend this tour. Views were beautiful, guide was fantastic, and the town was one to remember!
