The tour was good. The waterfalls are quite spectacular and pleasant to walk around. The day trip was nicely spaced so not a problem being in the bus or walking for too long. Daniela is an excellent tour guide with extensive knowledge of the country. The information she gave was interesting and not over complicated. I’d definitely recommend this tour.

Epic day touring the islands with Philip.! He’s a masterful and fun skipper. We got to see all the amazing sites with time to explore independently on 3 islands. My husband HATES being on boats and even he had a blast!!!

Fabulous guide Anita was super informative and great fun. The speedboat was high powered and the driver took us on some high speed donuts on the way home. Highly recommended trip- enjoyed it immensely
