The boat trip was beautiful and the island all the more. By hop on hop off I mean, however, that you can drive as often as you want and get off at different points and that was not possible.

Group of 18 people. Super helpful and kind guys They accompanied us to the island as soon as we were ready and picked up at the established time.
