The tour and the guide were absolutely great, we have rarely done such a nice tour. Great nature and a drive to a collect island. The snorkeling wasn't that great as we are used to other things. Only one thing spoiled the tour for us and that was the woman from reception, I've rarely experienced something so unfriendly, we almost didn't do the tour.

Excellent trip, well worth the money. Staff were very helpful and nice and the seats were great.If you’re an adrenaline junkie you’ll love this
