Would highly recommend this full day tour and especially our guide Kris. We only had one full day to explore the island and this tour was perfect and the price was a great value.

You should probably ask this question of the tour company for a more complete answer. We had only 4 in our group and were in a SUV. We did see other larger groups in vans
