Amazing day with our tour guide Maria! Highly recommend it. It's different form doing other islands which include snorkelling and swimming. This is great to enjoy long boat ride in a middle of a national Parc which will take away your breath from the beauty of it. The kayaking was really nice as well. James Bond island is observed from a very small beach that has a lot of people (seemed a lot because very small). I can't imagine how busy it can get there after covid restriction are removed for travelling. But apart from that the all experience will be forever cherished and I give also a lot of credit for it to Maria for taking time to take pictures of us, explain the history of everything we saw and mostly being so friendly and smiling all the time despite Ramadan and the hot weather on that day.

The trip was really well organized and everything went well. The food at the floating village was very good. A really great trip.

The guide was very punctual and all in all it was a great, eventful trip. Very entertaining.

It was a very nice tour. The long journey was really worth it. It was a successful day.

I liked everything. Lunch was great. Guide Joy was great. Everything was great.
