The Grand Island Tour was really thorough. We saw what we felt was the whole coast line. Guide was full of knowledge. We had a 6 yo with us, I felt the tour was a bit long for him, he fell asleep on the bus leg of the tour. It was a shame there wasn’t time for a quick swim at the end… the beaches were stunning.

Really enjoyable trip. Lots to see on the island. Definitely recommend hiring bikes as it’s the easiest way to get around. Hotel pickup/drop off was smooth and everything was well organised. Would recommend.

It was a nice trip on the ferry, very fast and nice crew. The bike rent is very useful to ride along the island. The bikes ride very well.

Easy to book Tour started on time Guide was very knowledgeable and handled a difficult group with ease

Ferries well maintained, the staff friendly and helpful. Great commentary during the trip
