It was a wonderful day. The scenery is extraordinary. The food provided was above average for a tourist trip and, in particular, the tapas selection from the local farms was exceptionally good. The beverages need improvement. The guide was lovely. A bit more information about the geology, wildlife and natural environment would have been great. Hopefully, at some point, the boats will become electric. But, the trip was absolutely memorable.
