We met our tour guide at the Pier. He was very nice. Unfortunately he did not speak good English and was very difficult to understand. He did have lots of pictures and explanations of what we were seeing in English. He did take us to some very interesting sites and he was very concerned about our well being and safety. We enjoyed our time with him. He made sure we were back in time for our departure on the cruise ship. The van was very comfortable.
