This day was amaziiiing. Our guide Abdi was so friendly and willing to give us a wonderful experience. We enjoyed the snorkeling activity so much and afterwards the Tegenungan Waterfall. We were not able to swim there because of the weather, but Abdi took us several photos and videos. It was such a pleasure to spend our day with him. He is funny, a very fluent English speaker, cool and kind. We were supposed to visit the Hidden Canyon, but it was closed because of weather conditions. So, once again Abdi saved the day and proposed us to take a full body massage session instead. Abdi was our driver, our guide and, also, a good listener. We’ve learned a lot from him. Thank you for this day!

i don't know where to begin, this tour was brilliant. abdi our tour guide was an absolute gem. he was kind, knowledgeable, funny and all round great. the snorkeling spots were brilliant, loads of fish and coral reef and we had plenty of time to swim and gaze at it all. one of the activities planned was closed due to bad weather and abdi was completely flexible with plans, coming up with suggestions but also letting us have an input. the waterfalls were great it was great having a local person give his input on everything. the restaurant he took us too for lunch was incredible, food, staff and scenery. i honestly couldn't recommend this trip enough. thank you abdi for such an amazing day

We had an amazing day full of adventures, Komand was our guide and was very knowledgable and considerate and looked after us throughout the day. Our most favourite part of the day was canyoning, it was very physical but so much fun. We enjoyed every moment of this trip.

Our guide was extremely efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. He took us through multiple stops and was able to change plans easily due to weather conditions.

Our driver edi was great!! We had a fantastic day.
