Hi, We are interested in your service during Mid of April. May I ask some quick questions? 1) How long does it take? 2) What is the route? Does it include Roys Peak Track? 3) I am traveling with my parents. They are old and cannot walk on steep hill. Not sure if this will suit them or not? 4) Will there be snow during mid of April? And, will your service be available? Regards, Bird
