      Excellent demonstration

      Very impressed with the presentation of the demonstration of harvesting of the Pearl. Have a much better understanding of the time spent and production of the pearl. The lady doing the demonstration was very pleasant, knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend this tour. At the end of the day had a lovely lunch nearby on the jetty.
