Great highlights

Tour starts with a brilliant open bus (no windows!). Great pirate ship ride with entertainment and fresh BBQ lunch. Waterfall is nice to see and market is good for those who want to do a bit of shopping. Lots crammed in the day but never felt rushed. Last but not least the tour guides were fantastic - helpful, kind and always at your service.
