Loved the day beautiful area. The only issue was that we had a tour guide (not the driver). He was a lovely man but he talked and talked ALL DAY non stop, repeating himself over and over e.g. we were told 4 times that there had been an earthquake the day before and we were very lucky as the rail had been closed etc. The scenery was so lovely it would have been nice to just quietly drive through and take it in especially as we back tracked over the same area and again non stop commentary. I like to be told about the area but not repetitively for 8 hours. We were back quite late as they kept stopping for photos that wasn't really necessary. We then had to queue for the tender Boat and we sailed late. This put us in late for dinner. All of that could have been avoided if we had of stuck to the schedule. Read Less
