Everything about the trip from start to finish was excellent. If I had one small criticism it would be that the English of the guide giving information on the boat was very hard to understand !

I really enjoyed the trip; the boat stopped in beautiful places for swimming and the crew was helpful and super nice.

Incredible tour with plenty of opportunities to stop off and swim at different beaches, absolutely loved it!

Go smoothly, see everything that is budgeted for, I'd say it's worth it.

Kind staff, remarkable views, everything was perfect!
