Lyn - your request came to me, the reviewer, and not Dan Irby. I would send you his email address, but Tripadvisor doesn't let me. If you click on his website, it has his contact info and he was very good about getting back to me when I had a series of questions and then asked about booking a tour. Hope it works out for you!
