All the background and history supplied was very interesting. Appreciated pick up and drop off. Michelle was very friendly and helpful, but she talks too fast and we were not able to catch all that she said through the microphone.

Location was perfect for our activities. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. An item needing attention is the coffee maker. The circuit breaker trips every time you turn it on.

Our tour guide was super and shared so much history and tidbits of what we were seeing. Her heavy accent was hard to understand sometimes, but she was very humorous.
