    Craig was absolutely fabulous. We saw all of the highlights. He has a great sense of humor and there was not one question (we had many) that he could not answer! I would use Craig again in a heartbeat. It was just my wife and me on the tour so that made it easy. Still, very affordable even for 2. Thanks
