Thank you Lloyd for a great educational fun filled day. I would probably say lunch at Shirley Heights was my favorite part of the tour. They had great food for being out in the middle of no where.

What an amazing tour. History can sometimes become a little boring but Lloyd made this tour really great. I have travelled across the world and I haven’t had anyone make us laugh so much.
