Overall rating

4.1 / 5

based on 8 reviews

If you are looking for complete peace and contemplation and don't feel like meeting people - let it be. For everyone else it is a wonderful and perfect way to experience the islands. The team is super nice and always tries to pay attention. The bad reviews are aimed at vendors and masseurs who are not part of the tour. The guides even warn you about them. Be sure to book the VIP Tour and enjoy a great day!
