My wife and I happened to be the only visitors at the time so we had the guide to ourselves (luckily). I would imagine if more people were there, you would have to do a good job of planning either upon arrival (probably a more practical way due to weather and scheduling) compared to in advance. I found it was best to discuss all of the options in advance and upon arrival, come up with a plan in order to maximize what you did and scheduling. You'll have a great time either way!
