5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Excellent tour. Jose was an excellent guide, was waiting for us when we came to the pier. Hot springs was fantastic, but not enough time there. Lunch was delicious.

4 star rating: Recommended May 2015

Our tour guide Jose was waiting on the pier with a sign showing the names of people on the tour very easy to find him. We had a comfortable, informative ride to Antigua, then a nice walking tour with brief stops for photos. On to the spa for an excellent lunch and time in the thermal pools. Overall, great value and interesting guide. I would recommend.
