Wonderful for a group trip. If you want something more private this may not meet your expectation. Additionally, waterfall view is really limited, so do don’t expect to much from that programme part. All in all we personally were satisfied with trip and staff. Thank you!

Very motivated and friendly crew on board. It was a lot of fun and all points were visited. The lunch was tasty and sufficient and the drinks were tasty and sufficient. We would book the tour again at any time.
