I can’t spell this out any clearer. This is an absolutely brilliant trip. The boat ride to the stop was fun especially with the drinks already flowing at 10.00. The staff were all very nice and the bay where we anchored was very pretty. Jetski was fun, snorkelling with the fish was amazing, and the speedboat ride although short was really good. On the way back we collected a saxophonist who then stayed the rest of the way. Really good trip and with the unlimited drinks, brilliant value also. Worth every penny.

Nice tour, the tour guide tried her best to explain everything and to entertain the group trilingually. The stops gave the opportunity to buy souvenirs without being intrusive. Lunch (not included) was good value for money. However, with very different waiting times depending on the choice and accordingly sometimes sporty times.

A well organised and comprehensive guided tour of the interior of the island. Covers culturally and historically important sites as well as natural wonders and National Park. Coach allows good views od spectacular scenery.

Would have liked a coffee stop in the morning instead of afternoon. But a minor detail, as overall fabulous trip, well worth doing.

Perfect trip with a fun crew. Our daughter had birthday that day and there were very kind to do something special for her.
