My 6 year old son and I were the only ones on the tour with Tino. It was a fantastic day and I’m so glad that we did it. Tino was an absolutely amazing driver and guide - he provided lots of detailed history and information throughout the day but also went above and beyond in making the various stops extra interesting and relevant for my son. The jeep itself was loads of fun, and lunch was delicious and our hosts were so friendly (and what a beautiful, tranquil spot). I’d highly recommend this to anyone - it was an unforgettable day!

We had an unforgettable experience. We came in the morning and returned in the evening—a perfect time to get sunbath and swim on the iland, eat in the Restaurants and go shopping.

Great quiet ride, I will definitely come again, it was a great experience to drive to Bol to the golden beach, just TOP! ☺️

It was very seamless to have tickets before hand and right on my phone.

Great way to quickly get to the Golden Horn Beach!
