    Stunning tour of San Miguel Last week I enjoyed a breath taking tour of San Miguel Island with Miguel. Nothing was too much trouble and he was the perfect host. The island is simply stunning and Manuel was knowledgeable, friendly and good company throughout. Can totally recommend him to anyone wanting to explore the island in style!
