Absolutely fantastic day. We saw magical coral gardens and a lot of fish. Really amazed from the beauty perfect organization, friendly guides and tasty lunch. Recommend to everyone. Worth for money

The tour was in Russian in the beginning but we asked to be also in English and then it was all good. It was quite cold to swim now in February but the rest of the activities were perfect

Riding a camel, snorkeling and much more. The buggy has dust, so it may be better to mask it.
