Great tour, fantastic tour guide who gave a very comprehensive talk along the way. A little gem of an island that I did not know about but was so very glad to have taken this tour. Great lunch at the hotel which the guide took the time to find out what we liked and did not like to eat and then ordered for us. An interesting tour to take.
