based on 227 reviews

I won't lie that I started the tour thinking wouldn't be as great as the reviews say... The staff was incredibly responsive and the tour get you to a few paradises on earth. I highly recommend the tour and encourage the participants to appreciate how the group works hard for the future guests to have a great memory in Colombia. I give a special shout-out to Alex, our guide, that was going above and beyond for our comfort and to keep everybody happy.

Perfect day at the Rosario Islands! Alex was a great tour guide - very enthusiastic and accommodating. Fruit, lemonade, water, (some beer), and $25 for lunch was included in the tour. We snorkeled, relaxed on a private island, went to Cholon for the party scene, and then to Playa Blanca for lunch. It was an excellent day. Highly highly recommend!

It was very peaceful, you only get off to snorkel, not at the islands. The yacht was really nice, it looked new, the drinks were good an it was very clean.

Large boat, good drinks, fun energy and nice crew. Hard to go wrong.

Great experience. Would recommend for the price and activities
