We were delayed getting into port and they happily accommodated us at a later time in the day. In addition, David our tour guide, was so knowledgeable and interesting that the time flew by and we all hated to see it end. Our group of six would highly recommend this tour!

Awesome trip, informative guide, very windy day so they gave us rain ponchos so we wouldn't get wet on the water, very considerate of them. Would do it again if ever back this way.

This was great fun and well worth the price. We particularly enjoyed the water part of the ride but the whole was great. Guide was very well-informed and amusing. We saw all the sights we wanted to see around town and the locals seemed pleased to wave as we passed by - lovely!
