Well organized! Great guide, and group was not too big. Would definitely recommend! Ok for beginners as well.

Boat was small and not too fast, which I find very positive. The captain had the right sense of humor.

Super cool tour, smooth boat, funny captain, better than the Bengali caves in my opinion!

The caves and arches we paddled through were spectacular. Really worth seeing.

The tour guide was very nice and very professional.
