‘Suzee met us at the dock and we were on the road almost immediately. Her tour was professional, fun, engaging with lots of local information shared. The van was very comfortable and air conditioned. Suzee had it well stocked with local drinks. There were plenty of opportunities for comfort stops and the coffee at a local cafe was exceptionally good. This tour wet our appetite to come back and spend some more time in this wonderful windy city.’  Leisa, UK
