4 star rating: Recommended February 2016

Excellent tour. Our guide, Victor, as well as the bus driver and boat driver were fantastic at spotting wildlife mainly birds, but also bats, reptiles and monkeys. I would highly recommend this tour.


3 star rating: Worth doing August 2016

This was ok if u need a relaxed type of tour after a high intensity one. The cruise was nice and our tour guide Victor pointed out lots of birds and animals. I recommend that you take a high powered DSL camera with zoom lens to be able to take pictures of the animals, they are so far up in the trees
