"Brilliant experience. Damian was fantastic. Really good guy with a good sense of humour. He struck the right balance of being informative and humorous at the same time. Sometimes, people can be overpowering and make people feel uncomfortable when they are in charge of this type of activity, but I have to say Damian was excellent. Would definitely recommend this to others. Thanks guys!! The whole experience was 10/10 "
