This is the first time taking a Guru tour, prior to the start of the tour I received great communication from Jason. it who was a real pleasure to meet Jason who was everything you needed from a tour guide. He was informative, knowledgeable, providing just the right amount of content & detail. The tour itself was definitely worth while on our first day giving us our bearings for the rest of our trip. Jasons local knowledge helped us make the most of our short trip. I Would definitely recommend Jason’s tour.
