My sister, visiting from the UK, loved the unspoiled beauty of the island and the respect ofr it's flora and fauna. She recognised the good management of the island's transport and also its waste management processes. We were very limited with time so only skimmed the surface, however the whole day, including lunch, was excellent. Just sorry we missed the museum as we got back from our bike ride after it had closed - I'm sure it would have been exceptional to experience more of the island's history.

I am a cyclist and was a little weary about what type of bike I would be riding as I am used to riding carbon road bikes. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the bikes were to ride. I had heaps of fun. the whole trip was money well spent and worth every penny. i will be back

Really good day out well organised with bikes available. The island is not flat so the biking may prove a challenge for some as you rack up 18 miles if you do the full route around the island. Chance to see seals as well

Great experience, definitely worth getting the bike hire. The beaches are amazing, the whole family loved it.

Nice ferry ride & great traffic free roads to bike on
