We were able to get hold of 2 remaining places at the last minute, so to speak, and it was worth it beyond measure. In addition to the incredible appeal of exploring the palm on the water, guide armin also played a huge part in the great tour. Many thanks for this and for everyone who is interested - unreserved recommendation (unless you have back problems)
