Excellent! Wonderful guide, very thoughtful, knowledgeable and charmi.

It was a very full on day. Our guide (Snow) was full of energy from the start. When we got to Marble Mountains it was raining and the escalator was not available yet she asked us if we still wanted to proceed and we did with gusto! Amazing guide, full of energy and care. Highly recommend the whole day.
