On the first part we were a small group and it was easy to get along what the guide said. On the other part, several people joined the group and the group became a bit large and it could sometimes be difficult to get along with everything our skilled guide told us. But We had a great tour

Val was extremely knowledgeable. She talked very fast which wasn't helpful, but you get used to it. I'd recommend it.
