I broke the drive into 2 days - easy to do. I WANTED the touristy things and they were ALL on the list with EASY directions. The "secret" backroad was worth the cost alone. The views and the photo ops were AMAZING. I LOVED that...More

Great tour, if you can stand the annoyingly happy guide voice. Lots of great insight, saw lots we would have missed otherwise. Break it into two days, it's way too much to do in one unless you don't plan to get out of your car...More

This driving tour takes you to places you might miss and has lots of information that you will find interesting. The commentator has a warm friendly manner that grates on occasion, but overall, an absolute must.
