He was rude, condescending, unprofessional and generally obnoxious to customers and others. His driving was erratic and he was impatient and rude. One gentleman on our...More

What a pleasant cruise, plenty of bird life and wildlife, and any questions thrown at the tour guide were answered with the knowledge of a professor, we were shown some croc haunts and saw several basking a step back in time,
