How was your Explore Tour Leader?
"The tour leader was the driver, tour manager, cultural guide, walk leader & shopper.
She was an excellent, safe driver with a good personality. I feel that was a great deal of responsibility for one person. It was a good job that she wasn't taken ill, especially as the temperatures were over 100F all three weeks. "
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
"Check the itinerary for Alcatraz, as we only had a 2 hour gap to visit and you need a full half day, (3-4 hours), including the boarding times & ferry journey across the bay .
There is an addtional local payment of $100 cash per person to cover some of the picnics, but not all. This is not mentioned in the brochure. "
Do you have anything else to add?
The trip notes did not always match the actual itinerary. This was possibly due to a lack of time as the driver was also the tour manager, cultural guuide and walk leader. I suggest that either the trip notes are modified or additional support is given.
