Easy to organise. I was particularly impressed with the Customer service. Initially when trying to book I wasn't sure if I had done it correctly, an 0perative quickly sorted it out. Easy to follow joining instructions and a text to inform me the coach was running slightly late due to traffic.

Great organization, really nice tour guide (Ana) and the driver. ;) Big Joe from tour to the Rock was also AMAZING (and extremely funny!). Love it!
