I showed him my list of to fo and what we didn’t and he added to it for us based on our likes. Pulled over for me several times as I’m a photo junkie and had to get that perfect shot. He is from St Kitts and very knowledgable. Such a great day. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Tatem for such a great day . Robin and Craig
