I would highly recommend this tour. It was amazing food and Gerard was so knowledgeable about the history of the island. We learned so much and tasted amazing food in places we may not have selected on our own.

Thanks for the good words. I took great enjoyment in showing you and Michelle some of my favorite spots and sharing some wonderful tastes. A smaller, more personalized tour can add so much to the experience. Thanks and I hope to see you again! Gerard

Our guide was amazing. Very Knowledgeable. Very accommodating. It was only two of us. Cruise ships were not in port. Returned our calls promptly (even though it was way after hours). Don't eat a big breakfast, this tour is rather filling. Gerard is the best.

That may be the most satisfying comment I have ever received! Perhaps the greatest part of the guide job is to accept the opportunity to enjoy meeting new people who share interests. I love spreading the word on this beautiful and historically important island... Gerard
