Very touristic places that are visited - but this is to be expected. But the prospects are very nice and worthwhile. We particularly liked the canoe tour - it was really great and the canoeist took great pictures and was very friendly. The guide was also very nice and took nice pictures. We enjoyed the tour and would recommend it.

Awesome places, but some stops could be more exciting. Kayaking through mangroves was boring at some points, thought we will visit much more caves. Other places are really stunning, be careful at the Bond islands market stones, i almost fell of the stone when climbing through carved tracks.

Very beautiful islands and they were the best travel guides I could experience. Everything well organized, food and drink super good. Speedboat was a lot of fun. I recommend everyone, it is worth seeing these beautiful islands. Thanks very much
