Did an island tour as an excursion from a cruise. The island is still very much in recovery from the hurricane, with roads, homes and cars still in poor condition, but you could still see the beauty of this island.

I booked through the cruise line, however because of the hurricane the island is probably no longer lush.

As Janet said it's mostly a bus tour with a couple of stops for pictures. Pick up and drop off is at the pier.
