Brilliant trip to see beautiful islands. Friendly staff on the boat. Not too intense. The pictures don’t do the food justice, it was delightful. It was good the islands were done in reverse of the other boat trips so it wasn’t too busy. Would recommend walking to the beach rather than the golf carts - only 2k.

We had a lovely time. Tasty lunch with plenty of white wine. Friendly and competent staff. We felt taken care of.

This was an awesome tour and our tour guides were super friendly. This is a must!

Very nice and relaxed tour. Excellent meal and guides as well.

Very efficient organization, helpful team. I recommend.
