Hi David - thanks for the very kind response. We always keep the groups sizes small: not just for social distancing (which is essential) but to ensure that the experience feels intimate and personal. So, if there had been more than four we would have split the group and had a second guide. Really glad you enjoyed it. Very best Alfred
