Very relaxing, great variety, wonderful guides
The guides as usual were amazing and the bonus was this is their home. They have such pride, know the area and added extra hometown info!
The guides were so personable and the food was great!
The Norman Bird Sanctuary was a lovely place to come back to each day, and to explore on the nature walk and also independently. It's a great facility and seems tailor made for the kind of base we love as AGC travelers. I also especially loved biking on Block Island.
staying at the Paradise farmhouse at Norman Bird Sanctuary was really unique, beautiful and special
Totally covered all my expectations: comfy historic accommodations, beautiful weather, scenic locations. cruises, cliff walk and great bunk mates. But of course the guides Deb and Kaitlyn could not have been more amazing. So organized, happy and helpful; always ready to do more for us. I would repeat this trip.
The harbor cruise, the cliff walk, the people
