What an amazing tour led by Kirk! He knows so much of the history of the islands and his easygoing manner kept all of us on the edge of our seats waiting for the next stop on the tour. I never would have seen half the sites or known a tenth of the facts without Kirk. Would sign up again for his tours without any hesitation in a moment.
