I was nervous of the thought of missing my bus, but the young lady who answered my call was very helpful with direction to catch the coach. She remained on the phone until i came to the street where I can join my tour. Our driver was informative of places we visited and point out very interesting places and story behind it. He wished us a good trip on the boat and when we disembark after our tour. What a fantastic hospitality offered by the staff of Southern Explorer. Thank you for a fantastic day and experience❤❤ Gives me hope that there are great customer services exist in this Covid time. Thank you once again. JT from Hamilton

It was an amazing experience. Our tour guide was fabulous. He was friendly, helpful and relaxed. He gave us history and informative talks as we traveled along. The scenery is amazing. It is so beautiful and awesome it nearly brought me to tears. The boat trip was just as amazing. I would recommend anyone to go. It’s a trip you will never forget or regret.
