Excellent tour with the fantastic local guide Danny. Thank You Danny for answering all my questions and giving us all little local stories as well as facts on all the places we visited. Often on these tours you are not given enough time to explore and enjoy the beach and the forest but Danny gave us enough time to swim, walk and explore by ourselves and made sure that we had enough time to walk past the touristy area on the beach to a more serene area. Also, lots of time to kayak....was exhausted when I returned to hotel but in a very good way! Well worth doing and one of the best tours that I have done in Vietnam. Thanks again Danny, so glad that you were our guide!

If your new to the island and don't know alot about the place. I highly recommend John's tours. They will have all the answer that you need to know. The tours it self was really enjoyable. Will definitely recommend john's tours to other who are traveling to the island

Even sudden reservations were easily handled on the Internet. Thank you very much. Sunworld has been waiting for carts for a long time, so I think it is better to make a claim.

Well organised trip but be prepared to do a lot in a day. Great value for money.

It was a wonderful day . Our guide Kim was absolutely lovely
