Good pick up service, we were ready at 1700 as instructed when we booked then had a message to say it would be 1830 instead but not a problem. Van journey was comfortable and the guide was knowledgeable. The paddle boat guides found us the fireflies and managed to catch a couple for us to hold. We also saw the plankton light up as we returned to the shore. Unfortunately we couldn’t eat in the floating restaurant and went to another one in town. The food was fine but personally I would rather skip that part as it was quite late by the time we got there and the food wasn’t amazing but for the price of the tour it was perfectly acceptable. Overall good value for money activity.
