Our tour guide grew up in this area, so she was very knowledgeable. The Iao Valley Tour had spectacular vistas, and our guide walked with us. We also had enough time to explore on our own. The bus was comfortable. Part of the tour at the plantation was a guided tram tour of the crops and a demonstration of how to cut open a coconut. Our guide was knowledgeable canned speech and somewhat difficult to understand with his dialect. The coffee shop was clean with opportunities to buy the coffee.

Whilst the tour was well organised and we did enjoy it, it is advertised as 6hours 830-230. We turned up at 830 and were told the tour didn't leave till 915 and were dropped back at the ship at 130 - a little over 4hrs. Apparently there is an add on for the aquarium which we didn't know about. After dropping the folk off to the aquarium we were returned to the ship and then the driver went back to the aquarium to do the pickup there. We felt too expensive for the length of the tour we got - 1 3/4 hrs short of advertised length.

We again were pleased with the personnel handling the check in and the bus driver knowledge. There was a group of 19 that showed up late and the bus driver came back to get them. The saving versus NCL price was worth it.
