We really enjoyed this tour. The guides were very informative and it was great to be taken to parts of the island that you can't get to otherwise. The lunch was great too. Highly recommend!

The view at the highest point a vehicle can travel are what its worth..the food is also good and yummy, eaten beach side with entertainment, although the drivers themselves are quite the entertainment.

An excellent morning out exploring the island - our driver "Big Mac" collected us from the hotel and made sure there was stuff to see the whole time. View from 180m up the mountains was great and the commentary excellent and funny. Thanks guys!
