A full day's program with a humorous guide and great drivers (ready for any outrage in spite of the monsoon rains!) All hotspots on the island seen. Delicious food during the break. Great value for money. Perfect!

Excellent day, the guide done a fantastic job, very informative. Saw some wonderful sights from the Buddha’s and temples to the waterfall and secret garden. Highly recommended would do it again.

The itinerary was well planned. The guide is knowledgeable and the driver was excellent. They allowed us ample time at every place to visit. They also organized a pretty good lunch.

Great tour guide, interesting sights, beautiful views and exciting ride through the jungle! Loved it!
