We booked the tour to see some of the island. That was then confirmed. Deepak took us to the hotspots of the island and as the tour name suggests, he always took pictures of us :). We got smart from the previous detailed evaluation and everything was exactly the same. We were on the road for a total of 10 hours. It was a great day with a Commendable tour :)

We were picked up directly at the hotel. Our guide Deepak was very polite and accommodating. All the highlights were visited and explained and there were some surprises too! Deepak acted according to our wishes and even planned more time. An all round great day! We recommend!

We had a very nice day with the guide Vitash, we can only recommend this tour. We were able to see everything and take beautiful photos. He told us everything about this island and gave us enough time to see all the sights. Recommended

We can only recommend this tour! Our guide was super nice and explained everything to us very well! We were picked up promptly at 8 a.m., saw everything that was on offer, he took his time, so we were on the road 1 hour longer!

Great tour because you see many highlights and also a lot of information all around and for any other question. Our guide Dee Pak was very engaging and friendly and had extensive knowledge of the island.
