My brother had booked this tour through Island Marketing for $38.00 pp. There were four of us in our group. We got confused with ship time and local time so he called before our ship docked and they told us all was fine and to look for Godfrey after we disembarked. Godfrey was right there and told us where to find his bus. We waited another 1/2 hour or so while he rounded up his other cattle, oops, I mean clients.
We were dropped off downtown and told us he had to collect cattle from another ship that hadn't arrived at port yet and he would be back in about two to two and a half hours. When he arrived back in town, he had two buses and it was all very confusing as he was trying to put lots of people on these two buses. Let me just say the roads are very narrow and most of the stops were just pull offs and not parking areas. That being said, the first stop was a pull off, with three tour buses, with probably 60 people all trying to take pictures of the same scene. I didn't even try to look.
Back on the bus, to the mountain top where there is a huge shop. There he herded his cattle out of the two buses with orders to keep to the left of the gift shop and go directly to the deck. He then gave us a short lecture on Magen's Bay. Finally we were released to shop, but there were so many buses and tourists that we chose to wait on the bus. Of course we had to wait an extra 10 mintues for a few that don't wear watches. Next, we were given the choice of Magen's Bay or another beach. We chose Magen's Bay which does have a $4 pp charge. There was a little bit of sight seeing on our way to the beach but the driver had techical issues with her microphone so we didn't hear half of what she said. We were told we would be picked up at 4:40.
Godfrey was back at 4:30 but we waited until 4:45 for people who must have taken a taxi back to the ship.
Okay , this is the best part... A group of women (the same ones who don't wear watches) wanted to stop at an ice cream shop, at the entrance of the beach... this took 10 minutes. We were starting to get nervous about the time as we were supposed to be on the ship at 5:30. Traffic was bumper to bumper and moved at a snails pace. We arrived at port at 5:45 and the only thing he said was "oh, theres still a line".
He is a professional tour guide. He knows about 5:00 rush hour. Our opinion is he is very UNprofessional.
