Lunch box: Tasty sandwich, fresh fruit and water.
Our guide and driver were both brilliant and the brief history of the island that we were given between stops really helped to give the trip some perspective.
Would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to fit in as much of the island as possible during a short holiday like ourselves. Thank you very much to the hosts for a great day out!
