Ricky picked us up at the cruise port, air-conditioned "nice" van, we seen everything. $70 pp you can't beat it! Cruise line tours too expensive, and you have to deal with large crowds on large buses. You won't be dis-appointed..

Ricky was very knowledgeable and showed us all the sights. We did find at times he talked too much. We really enjoyed all the sights and the seeing volcanic crater was very interesting.

I made reservations 2 months before going, then emailed him to confirm a couple of weeks before tour. He picked us up for tour at 8:30 am and got back to ship sometime around 2:30pm.
