Really a good way to learn more about this island and see first hand the pride residents take in their environment.

“Poor Technology”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

The GPS device is very poorly arranged. You have to arrive at a certain spot before the recording starts. If you stray, or make a wrong turn, there is no way to tell which way to go next. You can't fast forward so make sure you complete your tour in one trip. There is no indication of when you have completed the tour. We ended up retracing our steps and hearing the same recording over again. We thought that we had missed much of the tour. Later we learned that it ends at the cassiono where we got confused. I have used these devices in museums and they are much better organized with a number system around the museum so you know when you are at the right stop.

“We totally enjoyed this as everything is relatively close.”

However, we did also rent a golf cart for just one hour which was fun and it took us a little further into the hills where we had some great views.
