Not impressed. The guide took me...

Not impressed. The guide took me there. We stood under a tree in the shade and he talk out of memory. Then he told me to walk around for 15 minutes and meet me at the gate. He told me i would see deer!! no deer at all. Besides, I have 8 deer walking in my front lawn in Canada year round. What's the big deal with deer? The guide had spoke English and knew his stuff.
