It was basically just a transfer service to the destination we wanted to go see. We got to the meeting place on time and couldn’t find our bus, after some time looking for it and wondering around, my husband called the number on our confirmation email. We got an answer right away, that bus was coming it was just running behind. So I would say it was just what we needed, great price, good customer service. My advice is to keep all your info and phone numbers with you. Overall great transfer.

100% worth it! Good music, vibes and sites. Don’t make the mistake I did not bringing a swimsuit, staff are really accommodating and provide means to float in the sea so you have nothing to be afraid of! Honestly coming back just so I can fully indulge in this experiences lol
