Nice tour, and great service from the Cruse staff and also the booking assistant from Get Your Guide, Hanna has incredible timing contacting me at the key moments of the travel, asking me how is everything going, taking care about every detail (pick up time, drop off time, driver plates, etc etc). My vacations with my family were just amazing and all this coordination helped a lot. Don’t forget get Dongs, that was my mistake, if you miss this they do accept US dollar SOMETIMES, and if they take it, they will do at a very high exchange rate.

I was absolutely satisfied with this boat trip. First of all the cabin we got was great with perfect view a great house keeping service. The food was fantastic and we especially enjoyed the dinner. We also enjoyed trip to the village on the bikes and kayak trips. Especially guide Lucky was great. I would like to recommend this boat if you want to enjoy great view, food and trips. :-)

Amazing cruise. Staff always smiling and eager to please. Their English was very good

Well organised, friendly and informative guide, amazing views and a very tasty lunch.

Very nice trip. Glad we selected only for one day. Was very good. :)
