Our party of 5 loved the tour! Martin did a good job talking about the book, movie, and additional tidbits. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I plan on it now. The quick break at Parker’s was also nice!

Martin was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. The walk was beautiful and we rather enjoyed it. The subject was covered beautifully and even after reading the book 3 times, I learned some things I don’t know. So worth it!
