Micheal is a very knowledgeable tour guide who knows the history of the maroons and the significance of cockpit country. He is also very accommodating of your needs/wants during the tour. He gave us a lot of information regarding the history/fruits/animals of the area. My only area of improvement is making the time at the village/hike longer. It felt short and I wanted to spend more time hiking the mountains.
