We were picked up at the dock promptly and our guide, Lyda, was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We were a group of 3, with our guide Lyda and driver in a clean, new taxi. We were taken to the sites, and as advertised, we advanced to the head of the line ahead of the bus-loads because we were a "small group tour." We had a very nice tour, and a good lunch, and Lyda was delightful.
