  • Information was a bit misleading, stated

  • The local company appeared to be run by fools. Our trip was delayed by period of time while they hustled the crowd for more tourists. We even were driven around town for no reason while they searched for more takers. Therefore we started almost an hour late. The driver was an idiot. He texted while driving the whole way back to town at the end of trip (50 miles. We almost missed out embarkation because he wouldn't believe us that we had to back at a certain time. I can not recommend this trip.
