This was by far the best boat trip I have ever been on. We went for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. The food was amazing, and I mean really good-restaurant quality. The boot was immaculate. The guides were informative and kept us all up to date with where we were going, history, etc. They made us a fantastic non alcoholic cocktail too - wow. We got canapés, BBQ and even dessert! I would so recommend this. Other companies had 60 plus people crammed on their boats-ours had 20. Lots of space

This was a punctual, well organised, informative & enjoyable trip of the island. The coach driver Dave deserves formula 1 status for manoeuvres on the serpent drive. Sebastian was just fantastic If you do nothing else other than sun bathe…..book this tour
The tour was very good. The only problem we had was that you and the local organizer had specified different meeting times, which resulted in a very long waiting time.
