Excellent, highly flexible tour with very welcoming and friendly, knowledgeable guide (Danny). We were a group of three, myself and my two teen children. Each of us has a unique disability - I've had a transplant, my son is autistic, and my daughter has a mobility limiting illness. The cab suited us perfectly. Danny picked us up at our hotel and asked what we were interested in. Weather was poor, but we still saw what we wanted. We were able to stop for food when required, pictures when wanted, longer stops when desired and Danny even returned to the hotel to drop my daughter off when they began to feel ill. We had some time remaining at the end, and he stopped at a shop for me to pick up a gift for my husband. He gave information about the things we saw and was conversational and friendly without being invasive. Absolutely recommend. The only potential issue is that it was sometimes hard to hear what he was saying, so people with hearing disorders might have a hard time.
