Would highly recommend! Coach was about 5/10 mins late to time we were given but that’s expected when there’s a lot of people you have to pick up! The boats are amazing, so much detail put into them, they had a parrot you could take pictures with, a show that the crew puts on plenty of opportunity’s to get in the sea, would do it again!

Nice tour guide. It all went a bit too rushed, but that makes sense if you want to see all the highlights in 1 day

It was a wonderful travel experience with qualified and helpful staff. Incomparable quality-price
