Kurt was our private guide for the day and did a great job with both the food and the photo part of the tour. There were so many beautiful spots that we went to on this tour - the online description doesn't do this justice. Kurt provided us with some helpful, quick tips about taking better photos with our cellphone cameras. The food provided on this tour is delicious and plentiful - again, the online description doesn't really tell you how much value there is in this tour. We couldn't finish it all and came back to the hotel with lots of leftovers. Kurt was very kind to my partner who was not feeling well the day of our trip. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Trolley was well worth the time and money. Suggest hopping on the green or blue line as soon as you arrive to see where you want to go back to.

great day out. guides were very helpful and courteous. the 'climb' was achievable for all. the plantation was relaxing.

super informative. seen a lot of the island by using this app!

Was a lot of fun and learning . Our guide was awesome.
