circuit that I do not recommend for people with weak backs or elderly people ... The 2 hours of the bus trip was a nightmare, no shock absorbers we jumped in all directions on the way there as on the return ... back it was raining the bus had no wiper !!! @@ Other than the excursion, the boat trip was nice but there was nothing special to see ... Lunch is served at 4.30pm on the last island in the meantime if you are hungry you pay to have food delivered !!! @@ ... I did not join. The excursion Deserves a 5/10 the guide got off before us, we are left alone with the driver to our hotel .. not very professional!
