I had a tricky start as I panicked. But I had the most amazing guide, who was patient and guided me all the way. Which made things better and easier...now I can't wait to go scuba diving again. Its a amazing experience!! Highly recommended.

Definitely worth buying a 2 or 3 day ticket and doing the different routes on separate days, as this gives one enough time to hop off and on at leisure. Cold bottled water supplied for free, so no need to bring your own.

It was an unforgettable experience. The sculptures were amazing and it was unique! I highly recommend it!

Amazing! Zeeshan is a great guide, explain everything and take good photos. Very nice!

Very punctual! Drivers are very courteous and friendly
