As a CDL tour driver for over five years, offering small group tours allows me to give personal attention to my guest. Having only 2 to 6 people allows to have a much more personal experience. I have over 350 sunsets and have given lectures on the Nene at public schools. Most of the year I’m the only person going up for Sunsets. If one of the big companies is going up it means your in a bus with 24 people NOT fun. . I provide clothing , drinks and snacks. I will take lots of pics and make a video. This is all included.
