    Not enough explanation was given during booking to assist us to book any further activities.
    the name tour also seems a bit misleading, its ferry ticket and hotel pick up. its not clear that there is no touring element

    This tour was very disappointing. It wasn't actually a tour. It was a taxi drive to the ferry, and a ferry ride to the island. It would have been far cheaper to arrange both direct with a taxi company and the ferry company.
