Martin was pleasant and demonstrated an excellent grasp of the history of this beautiful island. He paced us well as he led us to wonderful photo opportunity spots. I was disappointed, however, that he offered no help with the photography such as composition, camera settings, etc. Given the high cost of this tour and the fact that he is advertised as a professional I expected more. His rental car broke down resulting in a missed sunset photo op. 100 Euro added for extra car rental time was exorbitant

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: As far as I remember instruction was offered in a number of visited locations. I apologize about the rental vehicle but as you remember it did have a mechanical issue and for safety I decided it was better to stop using it. After a call to the rental company, another vehicle was delivered to the restaurant within 10 mins. In regards to the additional 100 Euro, that was an option offered and agreed on before the tour was booked in order to optimize the group time on the island. Sorry for any inconvenience.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: After our staff went through the communication between customer and guide it was found that the customer agreed before booking the tour on the extra 100 Euros to be paid locally in order to have a van as mean of transportation.
