    The guide was great, my only critique is that we barely spent any time at montserrat and the overall tour was far more wine dominant than I'd anticipated. Should probably be renamed to "wine tour with expedited montserrat sampling" but aside from that it was great, I did enjoy both montserrat and the wine tour as well as the food and our guide was excellent.
