I love this exhilarating trip exploring the coast, coves and colourful houses. Alex was simply amazing as our guide, and introduced us to the natural beauty as well as the local history and culture. I had a fantastic ride and took lots of beautiful pictures. We also had the chance to swim or snorkel at a gorgeous location without any other people.
