"a genuine, honest and true experience"... I couldn't ask for a better review. Thanks so much - you might see these words in a brochure sometime. Coming from an independent traveler they mean a lot. Best wishes for your future travels, Sean.

Fantastic tour with a wonderful guide in Sean Blocksidge. Canooing down the river, trying wine, seeing whales and nature in a small group was amazing, the best day! And that was only some of the things we did 😊
