Note - the "average" rating is not for the tour's 'informational' aspect, nor ground covered -- it is the rating for our day-long 'experience'....which was not what we had expected.
The guide definitely has knowledge and enthusiasm for his work. Plenty of information was forthcoming; however, we found him extremely rigid and very inflexible regarding our wishes, or any (even minute) adjustment of, or deviation from, the tour schedule. Any request was summarily dismissed. There was no compromise to be had.... none.
This is a tour for those who love being, literally, bossed around (and not in a polite way) and driven for 9 hours in a vehicle with worn out shock absorbers and without air conditioning (oh yes, the vehicle HAS a working a/c unit, but Trevor would not turn it on, saying that the price of gas was too high!). That response, considering the price our group of 6 had paid for this tour, was entirely unacceptable, especially since the tour was a very long day and it was spent having wind blowing in our faces the whole time. He would absolutely NOT turn on the A/C.
Before going on this tour, members of our group had questions about the itinerary and they were met with very curt and reprimanding responses. We just assumed he was very busy and had no time to craft a sensible answer. That should have been our clue.
The lunch was excellent, delicious and fast, and a reprieve from the smacking wind in the wide-open van.
All in all, although the knowledge was extensive and we did cover a lot of ground, I would opt for a more accommodating guide. The attitude is not what we expected after so many good reviews of this tour, and this is a VERY LONG DAY to be 'stuck' in that van with an inflexible, cocky tour guide.
