We enjoyed a wonderful day touring the island with our guide Charles. First and foremost, he's a great and safe driver. Secondly, he is very friendly, and very knowledgeable. He gives excellent explanations about the Island and the different things and places that you see. Finally, he is very flexible and adjusts the route during the day according to your desires. Hopefully, he can also take you up to a special viewpoint at the end of the day trip. As an extra, we left something in the car, and he really went out of his way to return it to us. Thanks again Charles!
