    The tour guide is local(Samuel). So he knows where to bring people to. He is kind and answers as much questions as you ask. He is open to comments and critics and flexible with modifying the plan based on what people in the group think. This tour because of its unique choice of locations and specifically the use of bike is my recommendation to whoever wants to wander in this region. Just ask the tourguide about biking rules. He might forget telling you.
