We had a great time and learned a lot. GREAT views from the boat.

The tour lasted a little longer than we thought, which made it a little stressful trying to grab lunch and then get to the theater by 1:45 pm.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Good trip. Good commentary. David a great amusing guide. Plenty of seats and snacks to buy if want. Big queues on the islands and headsets on Ellis are excellent. Well worth it.
