Meet the driver-guide at your hotel, then climb aboard a motorcycle and sidecar for a trip across the scenic island. There’s room for one person on the back of the bike and one person in the sidecar, and you’ll follow a route that includes major tourist sites and some of the island’s pretty back roads. Stop as often as you want to stretch your legs, take photos, and grab drinks along the way, with plenty of time to discuss each thing you see. When your half-day of exploring comes to an end, this tour concludes at the original departure point.
