Amazing unexpected private tour
yanksrule2a, Oct 2023
This was supposed to be a small group tour but the other family cancelled so it ended up being just Gregory, my amazing tour guide, and myself. I felt really bad, just getting paid from one person wasn’t worth his time and I was fine to cancel, but he insisted. We ended up having an amazing time viewing everything. I learned and saw so much including areas full of tourists and quieter areas all to ourselves that I would never have known about. Just again have to emphasize how wonderful Gregory was with me leading a tour of 1!
