Fred was genuinely a kind friendly soul with tons of knowledge! Really enjoyed every stop he made for us! We definitely couldn’t have done all the thing we did in one day, especially with a toddler! You get the cool facts, and information that you wouldn’t get if you were trying to do this on your own! On top of that, imagine all the planning it would haven taken, renting a car, looking for parking at every spot, deciding where to go, which route to take, they saved SO MUCH time & stress for our family! This was a wonderful surprise gift for my husband! He throughly enjoyed it!!

Excellent experience. Absolutely fantastic tour! Fred is a magnificent guide: he made us enjoy a perfect family day and we also learned a lot. 200% recommended! Fred adapts to the concerns and preferences of travelers. He is friendly, attentive, aware of everyone's tastes and responds to everything. We would repeat without a doubt! It is worth the price for the experience.
