Trip was worth it....though there was not enough time planned for this trip and everything was hurried. Our guide was nice and friendly and kept us updated and engaged at all times. Overall the trip was great, great food and great place.

This was a good tour indeed. Althoug the start wasnt so good the bus was late and we start our program an hour late but the tour gide was so nice.We didnt spend so much in the first island but the lunch was great and we have more chance at the second island.

The tour was good and the lunch was also good if the quantity was more, it would have been best . For Buyu Kada Island , if something extra for the tour would have been there, same like the first island tour of horse carriages. it would have been musch better.

I would say skip the tour. It consisted of 30 minute wait on the boat before we left the dock, then an hour ride to the first island which could be missed all together. There is nothing to see or do there. Then we took the boat another 15-20 minutes to the big island and spent 3 hours there. After a 1/2 hour walk around I just sat and drank a beer to wait for lunch lunch was best part of trip and for the time to run out. You get free time to explore on the island. I do not blame the tour guides for this, as I don't think any guide could make it appealing. When you leave the island, you get to ride 1.25 hours back to the other side and then side in van and fight traffic before getting dropped off. On a good note, the guide Tulip was great. She tried! This is 8 hours of my life that I will not get back!!!
