    Spectacular!! This was by far the best excursion we’ve ever taken. John was waiting for us immediately upon disembarking, he is so knowledgeable and entertaining. He made sure we saw as much as possible during our 4 hour tour. It also cost half as much as the ships excursion. Definitely worth every penny!!
