Would highly recommend taking this tour. We started out our trip on the island with this tour and glad we did. It made us realize what we did and didn't wanted to check out and showed us places we may not have noticed on our own. We did not do the butterfly house, maybe next time. Driver was very informative and nice. He was also right about the best fudge in town. I tried many and he suggested joanns - right on the money! I did not know the tour was broken up into 2 parts, it was a nice way to break it up. I loved that you could get off, walk around and catch a different tour back if you wanted to.

"The tour was excellent."
The tour was excellent. The information about the island is not to be forgotten. You could get off the coach and spend as much time looking at things as you wanted.

The carriage tour was excellent. We had two different guides and both did a very good job. We were able to get the row of seats behind the driver on both carriages which gave us a good view of everything. This was also a good way to view part of the island since we were three adults, one child and one toddler. The butterfly house was extremely interesting for my eleven year old grand-daughter. We left with her parents and ended up going back in for another hour. The butterflies would land on you. My fifteen month old grand-daughter liked the butterflies, the rock walls and water ponds.

"I loved the tour very much."
I loved the tour very much. It was interesting and i liked how both of the guides were funny throughout the tour. Please give these guides a tip. They deserve whatever you can give.
Tip: Make sure you don't misplace or lose your ticket for the second half of the tour, as i couldn't find mine anywhere. I even got out of line to search for it. The guy punching the tickets was very rude to us and embarrassed us in front of everyone. I was having such a good time until then. He talked over us and basically called us a liar. That ruined the fun time i was having. Maybe he was having a bad day and wanted to share. So, don't lose your ticket.

"It would have been rely nice."
It would have been rely nice. But the woman at the tickie office on the island didn't gave us the right passes. So was not able to go into the wings part. The woman that was in the wings office was not nice to as well. She gave me a hard time. I did call and they did try to make it right. But we didn't have the time to go back to the wings.

We loved the carriage ride, but we would have liked to ride through the state park for at least part of the time without the constant narration. Seemed as if the guides were searching for things to say.

We enjoyed the carriage tour, but could have done without so-o many corny jokes by the tour guide/driver on one of the carriages. Carriages were comfortable and gave us a good view of the island. Horses were beautiful!
