I had an absolutely amazing time on this tour! The guide was so welcoming and had so much knowledge of the area. She shared the history of each site we came across (including really neat stories about the castle), and took us through beautiful trails up to the top of the island. And really really, the clam chowder is to die for! You will not regret the jaw-dropping views, excellent company and the best tasting food this little island has to offer!

Shane is a fantastic guide and could tell both about the historical events in the area as well as everything about nature. Incredibly beautiful luck. Finish with the tastiest chowder imaginable together with a very good wine!
