OMG! This excursion was Awesome! Uncle Kevin was the coolest & funniest Tour Guide! He was very knowledgeable of the island & made the entire day worth the money. I traveled with a 18 month old & Uncle Kevin was very accommodating to her. It was also my son's 18th Birthday & Graduation & Uncle Kevin made sure everyone sang Happy Birthday to him. I'm a Travel Agent & will definitely recommend & send customers to this excursion. It's worth the money hands down!

This was a great trip. “Uncle Kev” did a great job explaining the history and culture of the island during the drives. There were several opportunities to get out and walk around or shop. The snorkel experience was great and I highly recommend it. Would happily do this again!
