very nice excursion, small group. great activities! On the other hand, there is no need to carry swimsuits and towels, swimming on the island is not great or even not possible.

Everything was very well organized from start to finish, food and water were good and plentiful. Definitely recommended

Everything is great, but it will be a bit difficult for children under 5-6 years old.

Amazing tour with the friendliest guides, would definitely recommend!
