Had a great couple of hours on the bus with a Fantastic and very knowledgable Tour guide. It was great doing this the day we arrived as gave us an understanding of where everything was for the rest of the trip. My 11 year old daughter said it was the best tour bus she had been on so that says a lot

This trip was amazing! Really well organised and the guide and driver were lovely, the guide had loads of brilliant facts to share and helped us take great pictures. Would definitely recommend this tour

its So Amazing & wonderful Trip , Really We enjoyed a Lot & unforgettable speed boat tour , very Expert in Sea Boat Driving in sea and v Both Husband & wife Love it :)

Despite that the start time was changed without notification, the ride was good. Our guide took time to explain the iconic features and took lots of pictures of us.

so I thought it would be boring at first, but it was hella fun!! the boat is extremely fast!! so much fun! and not expensive! definitely recommend!! 10/10
