The most important part of this tour we were looking forward to was the air portion. The tour description indicated it was going to be a helicopter and was disappointed later to discover it was a small Cessna plane. The pilot was experienced and very knowledgeable. Afterwards we did this river cruise that we could have skipped altogether. It was a 2 mile barge ride that didn't lead to anything spectacular. The rest of the day we were driven around by Steve who was nice but way too talkative and very political. He was asking us trivia questions all day long and think he ran out of things to show us as he was driving us by several beaches and showing us where he goes to church, the post office, where an old gas station existed, etc. - things a tourist could care less about. We will never do a tour again, we'll just rent a car and do our own sightseeing. We had been driven through this town with some shops, would have been nice to have stopped at some of those but felt like we were his hostages that day. Good luck if you decide to book this.
