We had such an amazing time on this tour! It absolutely exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide was patient, informative, and answered all our questions. The charcuterie board that accompanied the wine tasting was the icing on the cake. Thanks so much!

Best decision to explore the caves with the pirate ship. The ship looks a lot and after we are along the coast with some information from the brilliant captain, we were able to explore the caves with the dinghies. Thank you for the great trip!
