Robert was so friendly and informative, he taught the group a lot of information which was so interesting. Bus journey was long (because of the distance) but comfortable, clean and safe. The whole trip is worth every penny! Beautiful part of the world and I will come again one day with my wife.

Excellent trip. Great value for money. Very knowledgeable, friendly guide. The lunch on board the boat was really nice with a lot of food and a good choice of options. My only negative was the lack of WiFi on the bus.
