Brilliant day from start to finish. The tour company and guide made the trip stress free by taking care of tickets and planning the day. We were slightly apprehensive about the boat experience as it was slightly on the cold side and many had told us we would get very wet. But what an amazing sight and experience it was! Definitely the highlight of the day and getting wet wasn't an issue either as we had a chance to change into dry clothes straight after.

The boat ride was the absolute highlight. Our guides were friendly and informative. Transportation to/from our accommodations was included and convenient. The hiking/walking trails themselves could have been self-guided, and without a tour group we probably could have had more time to explore some additional trails. Overall though — amazing experience, I’d highly recommend.

Wonderful experience!!! However, I recommend buying the tickets via get your guide for entry into the national park, as they are very expensive on site

Fantastic adventure! Not sure the safety is all that good, but the drivers are good and I never felt at risk

It was amazing, totally loved the experience would recommend anytime
