Our guide, Claire, was great. She made everything easy, had the tickets for us, guided us through security and the ferry, and shared a ton of information and fun stories that kept things interesting. We had a range of ages with us, and Claire was flexible and engaging. Having a guide made the trip much more relaxing and enjoyable, especially with kids.
