I liked the tour but it felt even more rushed to me than the dc it all. Only two places but so much to see in a short time. I could have spend half a day at each place. Dale was our tour guide and he really knew what he was doing. He answered all our questions and had a great personality. Excellent tour guide.

We very much enjoyed this tour. My only negative is it was not clear where to meet the bus and tour guide. The e-mail gave an address, but nothing else was communicated. I think in the future, it would be good idea to list specifically where to meet as most of the people looked as confused as we were.
