Our experience with Geoff was first class! He made my father's 75th birthday extremely special, and as guides go, Geoff is the best I've ever met, and I've met quite a few! An outstanding experience!

Our private guide was fabulous! We were sorry to say goodbye to him at the end of the day. Harry was fun and incredibly knowledgeable. You save so much time with a private guide and we really felt we got our money's worth.
