We did an eastern tour. Nice route, the jeep was not very comfortable, so you have to be able to take a beating and not suffer from motion sickness. Our guide was a good driver, friendly, but not really a spontaneous narrator about what there was to see or to know about the route, which I thought was a shame. I have also done a west tour before, which I personally liked better (also a more enthusiastic guide back then).

There wasn't much off road or safari element which was disappointing as I wanted to see the forest a lot. Most of the trip is spent on roads. But we did get to see some great views and landscapes on the way around the island so it was worth it for that.

Nice trip but not very exciting. We had hoped for a nice bit of off road with some action, but it was a calm road through the mountains most of the route was just good roads. We thought the lunch was quite pricey considering what you got for it, which could be different. All in all had a nice day with nice company
