This tour was perfect for our group! Mary was our guide and she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire tour. We had some history buffs in the group and she answered all their questions adequately. She also did a great job of balancing the tour activities and knowing where to give-an-take as we were touring during low-season with moderate weather. Highly recommended this tour (and Mary) if you want a solid tour of the island. It's especially good for your Day 1 while there to get a feel for different areas and activities on the island.
