Friendly and knowledgable staff gave way to a great experience. Good length in that we we're ready to be done feeling like we got what we paid for. Perfect tourist activity for people (like ourselves) who are sick of taking visiting friends/family to the typical tourist attractions.

Great tour, but it would have really helped to stop more on the way back and discuss sights. That all happened on the way down, but then it was one long slog on the way back. Hard at the end, and going up stream.
