We paid $45 each US to ride a boat over to the island, asked to buy a horse for our tour guide from the boat, plopped on a pathetically small horse where a picture was snapped and then started up the mountain where along the way we were asked to buy a drink for our mountain guide and another picture snapped. My guide decided to ride on the horse directly behind me and I felt awful that the horse was laboring so bad up the mountain. After dismounting at the top, we were again asked to buy our guides a beverage (husband did and his guide then handed the bottle back to the person to resell again, offered the pictures to buy, and received many requests to buy food or drink. Heading back down the guide again felt he should ride on the horse. The horse stumbled and almost fell down the steep trail. I offered to walk so the horse wouldn’t have to carry me down the step part. The guide quickly agreed and then proceeded to ride the horse I paid for down. After getting back on and making our way to the bottom, the guide asked me for a tip which I politely declined. He then became upset and told me to just walk away. We then were asked for another tip for the men who sat fishing in the boat while we were on the island.
While the view was incredible, I would not recommend this. Stay at the top and enjoy a nice meal at a restaurant. You will still have a nice view.
