My husband uses a mobility scooter and Lawrence knew where we needed to go for the sites to be accessible. He also scheduled things in a way that allowed us to avoid the cruise ship buses. We had a wonderful day with Lawrence and would highly recommend him!"

Though most is walk-able from where cruise ships dock, per our request, our guide took us through the temples further away as well as showing us places in town we likely could not have found on our own within the one-day time restraints."

He was very flexible and able to re-arrange our itinerary when we were late meeting him from our cruise ship.
