Fish and chip tour

This would be a highlight of our trip. A very informative tour of the a hidden gem - the museum - by a very informative guide, then absolutely fantastic fish and chips right on time and enjoyed on the ferry to Soames Island. Everything according to plan and spot on timing. Thanks for making it happen. Don't worry if you don't get to see all of the museum with the guide - you can continue to see rest of it once you return from Soames island. This is a excellant value and unique experience.
