My friend and I are very happy with this cruise! It is really worth the detour. She did us a world of good. The landscape is magnificent as well as the history that accompanies it. We had the stars in our eyes, it's quite hard to recover from this kind of experience as the spectacle of nature seizes us. What made it even more beautiful was the presence of our two guides, unfortunately I forgot to ask their names but they were very nice. THANK YOU ! ❤️

We took the 5:30pm tour where the light is lovely and the water is also starting to get less crowded. It was great. The guides were very nice. There was a great bathing stop and on the way back you were pulled by the accompanying boat. It is advisable to only wear bathing suits, you will definitely get wet.

The excursion was great, the guide Rafael was very nice and attentive and explained things to us

We were treated very well, the captain very skillful. We are very satisfied with the activity.

It was great, our guide was nice and he drove the boat perfectly!
