Our tour guide was awesome! She was super nice and down to earth. We appreciated her allowing us plenty of time to explore and ask questions. She was very courteous and thoughtful when it came to keeping us safe and on time to each new destination. We met some great people as well. Highly recommend to get a feel for the entire island.

Fantastic way to see the whole island as a solo traveller. My tour guide was extremely knowledgable and made sure nobody got left behind. It does involve a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes. Great value for money would definitely recommend.

A great way to see the whole island in a day! Especially for the price since taxis are so expensive! History/info about each site shared on the bus and then free time at each site provided with helpful tips!
