Amazing Experience! Awesome Guides

The Tour was amazing and the our Guides (Emma and Paul(?)) did an outstanding Job! On the way out to the island Emma was looking out for wildlife and when we saw something we stopped nearby and had a closer look at it, while Emma gave information. Really nice and informative Experience, 100% worth.
