This tour is the best i have ever seen. Sometimes other people may have bad experience, but our experience was very nice. Even we got there on time. They care about the customer pleasure.

We purchased the VIP package and were very well taken care of. The table was set for us and they even threw in a vase with plastic flowers. A lot of plastic at the snorkeling site though. Such a pity.
