On a recent cruise, we signed up for this tour. We signed up far in advance and had to wait to find out if the tour was going since Saga requires at least 10 people. Ultimately 18 people were on the small, very comfortable bus. The guide and van were waiting at the port gate and

With this same tour company we had William,  a terrible guide, and Odin, a terrific guide, so I guess having a somewhat average guide, which Elli was, should be expected. He was okay. Definitely better than William,  but not nearly as good as Odin. The waterfall we saw was

Just returned from our shore excursion with Biggi. Tour was easy to find off the ship. Busses hold 19 max but 15 was perfect. Beautiful busses. Biggi kept us ahead of the crowds. A fraction what you pay from the cruiseline and you see a lot. I highly recommend if you want to see
