Having a knowledgeable personal tour guide kept everyone engaged. The family could ask her to elaborate on topics of interest.

Julian our guide was extremely informative. He knew exactly where to get us on and off the boat with ease and ahead of everyone else. It was definitely worth the price of the private tour for us to get the most out of our trip there. He also played photographer and knew all the best angles to get the best pictures of you!!
