What a fantastic tour! The guide was knowledgeable, funny and engaging. As the boat was limited to 15 passengers it was a comfortable space and everyone was able to get a good view of the surroundings. Extremely happy with our experience.

We went on the 4.30 pm tour which stayed out until the sun was coming down and it was absolutely stunning!
