Emelda and I started the tour promptly on her very comfortable vehicle. She showed me around the entire island of Antigua. I had the opportunity to learn so much about the island from the history to the nation's future progress. I am in love with Antigua and would love to return someday and have Emelda show me around again. Very impressed with Emelda and the hospitality of the entire nation of Antigua.
