Really enjoyed this trip. The boat was fast although this meant we got wet from the spray. It took a while to find sea life but we were privileged to see a group of dolphins. We also made a swim stop for those who wanted it.

This was the most active tour of my holiday but so much enjoyable especially hiking with the goats. I would only recommend this tour to people who are used to high activity because 2-3 hours of walking and some steep hills.

This was a fun off road trip. The landscape was rugged and the scenery beautiful. The drivers were friendly and info was given in various languages including English.

Wonderful experience Treking through the wilderness with some really behaved goats - good footwear is recommend
