Amazing experience!! The guide ensured safety and took the most amazing photos of my boyfriend and I. Amazing waterfalls, and cliff jumps (highest 10 meters) but there is plenty of 5 meter jumps as well 10/10 recommend

Seeing the whale sharks was the highlight of the excursion. They had to cancel the Kawasaki falls portion but made up for it with the island hoping. And the restaurant our guide took us to was so cute and delicious.

Fantastisk oplevelse med de mest imødekommende og hjælpsomme guider, der sørger for at alle får en god oplevelse. En af de bedste ture jeg har været på, så kan klart anbefales!

Great experience, swimming with the whale sharks was unreal and a must do. The canyoneering was so much fun

The driver and the tour guy provided outstanding service.
