Tourist Activities

Introduction

To avoid disappointment, it is highly recommended that for the tourist activity you intend to participate in, you check the opening times etc. It is not unusual for some activities to close for lunch or close on a Monday, for example.

Most staff speak quite good English, however, if you do not feel confident calling, we are more than happy to call for you.

Please also note that in peak season some activities may require pre-booked tickets.
