Kian was funny and knew his stuff. Great drive around the Eastern Shores with lots of animals. Pickup from hotel is nice, and blankets are a nice touch too.

Shakabarker are so well-organised! You're picked up from your lodgings, taken to the launch site (which looks rather run-down but is fine). We were just four people on an early-morning river cruise, and our driver / guide / host had loads of hot drinks, fruit...More
