I loved the tour guide. Gino was extraordinary: gave plenty of time for pictures, made sure we were getting food supplies, explained a plethora of things, and did his best. He was charming, funny and very kind. I am quite disappointed that we did not go to Sequoia which was my reason to book the tour!! Obviously that has nothing to do with our guide, but it would be nice if the company compensate for that in some way - I still want to see the Sequoia trees!
