    • The tours are always fabulous because you learn so much of the history of the area from the guides. And it’s great fun to have a local show you around for a little while!

    • Yes, the park is huge! You can absolutely walk and bike around yourself, but there is so much amazing history and culture throughout the park that it’s great to have a local guide to show you around :)
