Went for a little trek today, great fun. Tour rider was with us for the first 30 minutes then left us to find our own way back. Fantastic time even though we got a little lost in the woods.

My friend and I took an hour tour around the island. It was guided but we thought maybe that she wasn’t excited about taking us. All of the staff was nice though and very helpful. We didn’t have to have a guide. If I go...More
