Second time taking a Liston tour, third time on the Island. Beautiful place, good tour. The one tip I would offer is that the earlier your pickup time, the more time you will spend shopping. Not interested in shopping, skip it and pick the latest pickup time.

Sonny Liston was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and overall did an outstanding job. He made the tour fun and was very patient with me when I seemed to always be the last person to get back to the vehicle, lol. I had no clue how interesting the island would be and learned so much.

The tour was three different views of the ocean. Two of these were the same. No other points of interest other than a shop. We didn't see Blackbeard's castle, the government house or historic churches. Mostly just riding around and then shopping.
