We took the $35 tour and feel like we missed a lot. We were not shown the beach area even though we walked close to it, or the water area near the front entrance or any of the plantation area. And maybe being in October,...More

One of the highlights with me being incapacitated. Lovely guide, nature, humor, and weather. Feeling appreciative for doing something we might not have done if I could walk. And...walking wouldn't have seen so much. Thank you
