We took the all day tour in February 2012 and was very pleased with our choice. We had one day to "see" everything and this group does a great job of covering a wide selection. They were very good about staying on time at all the stops without rushing anyone. Our guide and driver were very friendly and asked several times to let them know if anyone had something specific they wanted to see. We saw everything listed on their website plus a few extras. The price was extremely reasonable and the booking process was quick and easy. We had our 16 year old daughter with us and she also enjoyed the tour.
The seats in the bus are facing inward in a "U" shape which makes it very difficult to see out your window as you are constantly straining to look over your shoulder or actually turning around in your seat. I understand the premise behind the seating - bringing everyone together, sharing conversations, etc., but, for me, I would have preferred more conventional seating. Also, they play great music throughout the tour - a lot of it relating to that specific part of the tour - which was enjoyable, but some of the songs might be offensive to some people.
Overall, it was a very relaxing, entertaining tour that let us see what we wanted to see in a short period of time and I strongly recommend this group.

First off, thanks for choosing to tour with us! We take feedback from our guests very seriously. We have had mixed opinions in regards to our seating arrangement (many more positive than negative - hence the current arrangement).

Many people love it as it fosters meeting other like minded travelers and helps create an open dialogue between the travelers and the tour guide - We like the idea that everyone is involved collectively in our day excursion. I do however, understand your complaint and we are looking into a way to address it... Possibly having dual formats (in-line seating and communal seating).
Thanks again for your input and for choosing us! Safe Travels!
