Reviews of this tour
"We have traveled all over the world and booked so many private tours, but Duran Duran is one of the best ever. I was a tour guide at college when I was much younger (Crimson Key!), so I know a good tour guide when I see one. And Duran is one of the best". Morganbn, Los Angeles - CA on Tripadvisor
“First Class tour at reasonable rate.” Judy M, Potomac - Maryland on Tripadvisor
