I was picked up from hotel on time by Kate ( tour guide) in a comfortable mini van. The tour was predominantly Russians ( so was Kate ) but Diem (hostess on boat) and Kate made sure the three English speakers were always well informed . Food and drinks were great and the boat is older but very nicely done, felt very classy sipping wine as the other tour boats with people crammed into open sided craft looked on enviously. Would recommend this tour to anyone. Great staff on boat make the day very comfortable.
Speedy boat to Chàm Island and met with beautiful scenery and even more beautiful Islanders! Had a fantastic lunch with other groups and had so much fun !! Bought lovely necklaces and bracelets from local people at a very reasonable price! Next time I’m on Chàm islands I will stay for a few days ! Simply beautiful place !!
It was very relaxing. The boat is really unique and the staff were very helpful and friendly. There is a lot of down time and no actual wifi on the boat so make sure you take something to keep you occupied.
Great trip, you could have saved yourself the snorkeling at this point but it was still great to jump into the water and swim :)
It was great journey, but when I swam on the sea, that was not clean. other services were good.
