A must do trip
, Jan 2020
Well worth the money and a must do if you find yourself in this part of the world. The crew were fantastic, attentive and polite and pointed out everything of interest as you slowly meander along the backwaters. The food was fantastic and plentiful and with the unexpected bonus of a canoe trip it was altogether a brilliant experience
