Overall rating

3.8 / 5

based on 107 reviews

Great experience, competent and funny team. Very reliable and punctual! The tour was impressive. You should make sure that the guests are on time or else continue to travel alone by taxi. Travel time of 8 hours is not correct, since it was 10 hours. There is a slight difference if you are back at the hotel around 4:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m.

Was a bit late with the pickup, over an hour wait. Other than that amazing experience. Booked for me and my husband. He could not participate as he has an upset stomach sadly.

The boat has all the comforts, the staff is very friendly and the food is acceptable. The places where you stop to swim spectacular

Very good organizer, very interesting, can only be recommended.

Really enjoyed the excision. Definitely a must do.
