Overall this tour was excellent and we would recommend to all our friends, our tour guide was fantastic and ever caring for his passengers, the driver was excellent and got us home safe especially in the weather at times. Some of the visits i feel had been longer than required. However overall the trip was well worth it and the scenery was breathtaking for this this time of the year. All of Guides for the two mini tours and the long tour had been excellent. We definitely will do another tour with Take Tours and are already planning our next tour (summer). Thank you Take Tours well done. B and B
