The tour was very well organized. The guides were great and very entertaining. The best part for us was the kayak tour. The only point of criticism is that you are forced to tip the kayak drivers here. Unfortunately, some sellers are also very pushy on Pan Yee. The landscape is breathtaking with great photo opportunities. On the way back, a separate taxi was organized for us because our hotel was further out.

Very touristic places that are visited - but this is to be expected. But the prospects are very nice and worthwhile. We particularly liked the canoe tour - it was really great and the canoeist took great pictures and was very friendly. The guide was also very nice and took nice pictures. We enjoyed the tour and would recommend it.

It's a long day but they fit a lot in. It's very touristy but , to be honest, what isn't these days. The tour guides were funny. James bond Island wasn't the best bit but still good. It's a bit of a circus and they hang on to the james bond history to make money but, hey, it still made for a good memory.

Loved this trip/ everything was great. The longboat, staff, features of the trip, lunch and activities were excellent. Loved it

Was a wonderful trip despite the rainy weather! The tour guides did a really great job! Our highlight was the canoe trip :)
