  • Beautiful beach in the island. The boat was load and crowded...

  • The port on the booking is wrong! No text or call to tell me where and when picking up time was! I phoned them only got a answer on the day! They then rebooked me and again didn and #39;t email or text as they said they would. Didn and #39;t have a boot trip this holiday ruined this for me not happy

  • Not worth the cash.

    The trip by itself is really nice, the island is lovely and it is really worth visiting and spending some time there. However, the only thing that is actually included in the price is the bus trip. Boat trip fee was collected in the bus 18 and not 15 as advertise 1 on getting on the boat for nature preservation. Food is not not included, neither are beach umbrellas. Visitors would be better off just renting a car and getting the boat tickets by themselves. For 4 people we played 220 for a bus ride. We have done the Jeep Safari tours, which are full day with almost everything included, same price range.

    I have booked a couple of great trips over Viator really happy with the platform, so I was expecting this one to be matching the overall really good level of the offers. However, this one was a bit of a disappointment.
