The trip was booked on line, everything was done efficiently and on time. Starting with info about the meeting point, pick-up and course of the trip perfectly. Your great guide. Her English was so communicative that even those less familiar with the language were able to arrive on time for the meeting. In a word, a revelation. I recommend it to everyone.

The experience was what I expected. The biggest issue is that it is really tiresome. Yes you see a lot in the 10 hours and if this is your target than it's fine, but I would make less stops with more time not to be always on the run the whole day.

Didn't find it necessary. Take a car or the local buses yourself and wonder around the island. I came at a time where the island was only 60% occupied with tourists, perhaps then this bus will be a better option (not linger cause of parking) if its your first day and you are looking to know the whole place in just a few hours this could be nice. I left early then planned and did my own at some point- its up to you.
