Our guide James and driver Choy, we're amazing. Very nice and helpful. My mom is in a wheelchair and Choy constantly helped with getting her up and down the van. James was considerate when picking the walking routes to our destinations. I would definitely want to be a part of there group again. I only wish we'd stayed a little longer in Stonehenge.
