  • The tour was great. Guide very professional and informative. We all enjoyed it and would recommend it.

  • Great tour guide and LOVED the white washed village! It is a MUST see! The only issue was we had a VERY difficult time trying to confirm the time for our tour. We finally received a meeting time after emailing and calling multiple times 8:00 at our port of call our group of 6 was waiting and no one was there. We tried calling and the phone was disconnected. We had other local tour guides trying to help us as well. It was very upsetting. Finally our tour guide arrived at 9:00 and said they had emailed us the night before stating they would meet us at 9:00! Really?? We were at sea!!??
