Ferry ride was enjoyable. Beautiful weather and views. Nice to see historical roots.

Guide was friendly but very new and green. I chose to defend him vs. insult him when other guides offered to step in to provide history. Our guide learned from the plaque at the entrance of the caves, was off by several hundred years on some of his dates, and had very little to say. We read the plaque at the end vs. the beginning and learned much more than he'd told us. We asked about the things he'd skipped and not pointed out. Treats and lemonade were good.

This was my first experience with Aviator and I'm u likely to use them again without strong assurances of more senior guides.
