Very well! from the transfer from the hotel to the return. On the other hand, on the spot, once again, everything is much too expensive, it is more expensive than France for many things (cocktails, lobsters and even souvenirs...).

Very nice day, suitable for a young toddler too. The bus ride takes a bit, but the time spent on the boat and the beach makes it worth. When having questions they are very responsive on WhatsApp.

We had a wonderful trip! I would definitely take the tour - it was very familiar with only a small group and very friendly tour guides! Thank you for the wonderful time!

Good evening the Excursion was very nice. But the transport from the hotel to the boats much less, too long ......

Great day! Saw lots of fish while snorkeling, very helpful fun crew!
