This was a great experience. The guides are really good, and believe me I have been a professional guide. They really know what they’re doing and they’re so nice and good at organizing the event. I really enjoyed being on the boat, and seeing the fish in the ocean, and all the beautiful beaches of the beautiful islands. It’s good to know what to expect, the ride from the city to the where the boat is is the hardest part, and the longest. Because I had read some of the reviews before embarking on this adventure, I knew what to expect and therefore I had a good time, because I was organized accordingly. I had my music to listen to in the bus and so on. So I really had the most of the experience! Yes the boat is a bit crowded, but it is a happy crowd, and it is contagious. People dance laugh. I don’t like crowds, and I had a really good time. So I recommend!

Rachel our guide was very nice and helpful and always asked about wellbeing. She did the tour in three languages and was always considerate of everyone. The boat ride was very nice. You saw a lot and the crew was also very nice. We were on the boat with three groups, quite a lot of people but there was enough space for everyone. Sometimes it was a bit stressful because you didn't have much time on the islands, but you saw a lot. I liked it.

It is a very nice walk, you go through several beaches where you can snorkel, and see the fish. The bad thing is that they have a lot of people on the tours and they take a long time to pick up and drop off the passengers. And we didn't like the food, since it's like free fork and if you don't arrive first they take a while to replenish.
