Both our Taxi Driver and English Attendant provided a high degree of professional and personal service. They patiently waited for our extreme delay to disembark the ship due to the immigration process. Graciously, they provided our custom tour as agreed upon to ensure our visit was memorable. We extend our appreciation to these gentlemen!
