    Fi is an amazing trip manager! She was able to answer all of my questions and always went out of her way to make sure we had a great time. Having her as our manager made the trip nothing less than awesome.

    Fi is the best, she would make anyone feel safe. Plus, she always got me home safe when I had a bit too much. 10/10 would get wasted with tour guide again
