A Recent Review of this tour

the tour was excellent. Shailesh met me at the appointed time; had everything arranged (there was quite the series of taxis, ferry, admission fees, train...) he had all the paperwork and tickets pre-arranged. He was extremely knowledgeable, and was able to tailor the tour to my specific interest. I commend the company for assigning a tour guide who actually lives on the island! it's very different to get the perspective from someone who actually lives there. I will definitely use TBL again!
