Booked this a few day prior and was contacted the same day to share further details and contact information. I was glad to find out that the driver was in fact able to pick us up from our hotel and not a pickup destination 20 minutes away. The driver-guide was willing to accommodate our requests and was very flexible. I'm glad he was prepared with an umbrella as it rained for the last two stops of our tour.

Excellent guide Deepak picked me up perfectly on time and made sure everything was well arranged. Super informative and was able to answer all my questions. Always happy to take photos and make sure that we went to the best view points. We had some extra times so we were able to stop by a few extra stops. Great tour, highly recommend!

We had a wonderful day with lots of nice spots. Our driver Deepak brought us country and people closer to us in a great way. We would book the tour again and again and would recommend it 100%.

We had great tour over the island. Our guide Dipa was super helpful. He was asking about our preferences, what we would like to see, was making a lot of suggestions. Highly recommend!

Deepak was a great guide, perfectly ontime with the pickup from our hotel. And definitely went the extra mile showing us around and telling us about everything we saw.
