We all had a perfect day from beginning to end. Jamie and the other guides were all great and knowledgeable. The bus trip was interesting learning about the little towns along the way. The boat trip was amazing, getting up close to wild life such as the seals, dolphins, mutton birds was a highlight. Having the opportunity to view the magnificent cliffs, caves and rock formations was great. Highly recommend this tour.
