Amazing tour of the sights
This was such an amazing tour! Our guide, Marlin - hopefully the spelling is right!!, had a wealth of knowledge and had so many interesting things to tell us. The sights were fantastic and extremely photo-worthy to send and brag to friends and family. We even happened to come across a family member who owned a large chunk of the island who was so incredibly kind to let us in to get a great view of the mountains and beach that very few get to see! I would highly, highly recommend.

Ky and Owen were our guides and they were beyond amazing. Incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable. Ky really dove deep into the rich history and sacred grounds. We were in awe of the beauty and deeper meanings. We saw land that not many of the locals get to see. We had fun learning about all the movies that were shot on the land. We felt so welcomed and it was so much fun. Everyone said happy birthday to me at the end which was so sweet and thoughtful of Ky to lead. We also appreciate how safety conscious they were! Definitely a must-do.
