    The tour lasted approximately 2 and 1/2 hours. The communication was excellent before, during and after the tour. They checked and double checked for our dietary restrictions and preferences. We enjoyed the food at each of the stops. Yoli, our guide, was bright and cheery. She worked very hard to make sure everything went smoothly and that all our needs were met.

    Excellent samplings of food and coffee native to the island. Nahiomi was an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. We did this early in our trip to better understand the different foods we wanted to experience later in the week.
