We had a wonderful experience on the tour. Jimmy was a great guide and it was great getting to taste the oysters as part of the tour. We have never tasted anything like them and purchased some to take away too. We also got to meet Marion at the end of our tour, who gave us some great tips on some stunning places for a drive. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone.
