What Others Say

The mushroom tour offered by Elements Adventure and delivered by Charles was everything i had hoped it would be and then some. Charles is very knowledgeable and a skilled teacher. He was attentive to the group and had answers to all our questions. As stated by another reviewer if he didn't know the answer he said so and said he would get back to us. The mushroom tour, despite the rain, was simply delightful and highly recommended.
