That would be a great tour, especially with camera in hand.

Marc - We can vouch for that. We did just that last year as the Missus & I tagged along with Brassy when they did that last year. Lot of photo ops with beautiful scenery and an abundance of history learned.

We would highly recommend the tour to anyone.
