It was a good tour but the description was a little unclear. From the description, we assumed that we would have hotel pickup and drop off. We did not realize that there was a daytime portion and a separate evening portion. For the daytime, they pick up at the hotel, but you must get back on your own. The evening portion has pickup and dropoff. The tour was enjoyable and we recommend it!
