Absolutely one of the best excursions that we have had. Friendly, knowledgeable guides who seemed to enjoy there work and helped us feel at home and comfortable. Great scenery, especially taking the rough, jeeps only trail up. Amazing food with a minimum number of guest.....unlike those tours that we book with the ship.

This was, by far, the BEST shore excursion we have ever taken! We were greeted promptly at the cruise terminal, seated comfortably for the day-long trip in the 4x4 Jeep, and received so many interesting facts from our knowledgeable and personable guide! The lunch and coffee provided was also very authentic and delicious! Thank you again, Billy, for a wonderful day!
