    On a recent cruise, we signed up for this tour. We signed up far in advance and had to wait to find out if the tour was going since Saga requires at least 10 people. Ultimately 18 people were on the small, very comfortable bus. The guide and van were waiting at the port gate and

    Just returned from our shore excursion with Biggi. Tour was easy to find off the ship. Busses hold 19 max but 15 was perfect. Beautiful busses. Biggi kept us ahead of the crowds. A fraction what you pay from the cruiseline and you see a lot. I highly recommend if you want to see

    Our guide was great, giving us loads of interesting information. We had lots of time outside the minibus where he led us through the different geological features. There was lots to see and he got us from site to site efficiently, maximizing our time outside. We even ate our
