My tour experience was beyond expectations, I don't remember correctly her name, but she was incredibly knowledgeable. Highly recommended tour. They pick-up me on the exact location and exact timing where they instructed me to wait.

Great experience, great to get a glimpse of the nice corners of the island at first or to go there by ourselves

Was a really informative and interesting experience. Both guide and bus driver were very polite and helpful
