"We ran into another couple on the hike who had a different hiking guide who was constantly pushing them, telling them they weren't going to have enough time to make it to the top"
We had an absolutely fantastic time! The climb was one of the highlights of our trip. Richard was waiting for us right on time and even stopped to allow us to pick up some sunscreen and bug repellent on the way. He was an excellent tour guide, pointing out things along the way and telling us about the island. Even though we had brought our own water, he had some waiting for us. He stopped at some great look out points and even brought us to a beach afterwards for a quick 5 minute stop.He was a wealth of information on the island and had great stories and music. Lucius (I don't think I'm spelling that right) was our hiking guide and he was amazing!
He let us go at our own pace while making sure we were doing ok and enjoying ourselves. We ran into another couple on the hike who had a different hiking guide who was constantly pushing them, telling them they weren't going to have enough time to make it to the top, and then stopped at the three-quarter mark so they had to hike to the top by themselves! We were soo thankful to have gotten Lucius as our guide.
He made a comment on our hike about wanting to take us to the top and that really stuck with my husband. We truly enjoyed our hike and the thing that made it most enjoyable were our two guides, Richard and Lucius. They were both incredible! Please pass along our comments and thanks to them for making our trip memorable!
