The trip was very well organized, we didn't have to worry about anything on site.

Because the tour on the island was led by a local, we got an impression of the way of life there and learned a lot about the history and sights. So all in all a great excursion that I can recommend to everyone.
It was a wonderful tour, only it was a shame that no one spoke German, that would have been great. That was offered in the tour description.
