Terrible tour
Kimberley_L
, Sep 2019
Nothing much to see and tour guide didn’t walk along with her tour members throughout our tour. She dropped us off on each destination and asked us to do the sightseeing ourselves. She spoke very poor English and we have difficult time understanding her English. Will not join this company tours again!

Value for money sightseeing trip. Guide was knowledgeable and his English was good and a separate was provided. Would have liked to go around the top of the island from the capital, however went back the way we have come towards our accommodation as apparent time constraints three couples on the tour - each from different resorts.

Excellent tour. There 8 guests and 2 tour guides on our tour. The guides were informative and very helpful. There was just enough time at each stop so that it was neither rushed nor did it become boring. This is a great tour to give you a quick oversight of the island.

Really good value for money and a lovely tour guide. The only thing we were unhappy about is seeing monkeys and elephants in captivity used for tourism. Something we don't like and were avoiding, it was not mentioned in the description as part of the tour as well as the seeing the mummified monk. Would recommend though.

Very good tour which is worth doing to see the island. This tour is quite relaxed with just a 15minute drive between sights (I think there were 5 sights). The pick up time was earlier than stated though - around 8am.

Poor. No itinerary discussed or maps distributed. Difficult to understand guide. Very little information given about the island or particular sites we visited. We spent 30 minutes at the gold painted Buddha when 10 would have done. The main sites were visited but felt that we could have taken a taxi around the island for all the information that we were given. A pleasant guide but felt that this was a relatively new experience for her. Wouldn't recommend this unless looking for a cheap taxi service around the island.

Nice but not more. Tour guide just explained a few basic things at every stop and then left the group alone for 20-30 minutes. At the last stop (Nathon) we were left for 60 minutes with "here are some shops and restaurants, have fun", no recommendation. I'd say: Ok to get around for the first time.

We saw loads of places, and it was good value for money. However, the tour was totally ruined by the sights of animal cruelty. You are taken to a Monkey 'Show' were you are shown how the monkeys are trained to collect coconuts. They are chained up and forced to face forward for tourists whilst sitting on their arms. Also, there is also an elephant trek. The elephants are kept in a tiny pen and are stressed you can see them rocking back and forth. Lose the monkeys and the elephants and you have the perfect tour!!

Very pleasant tour. We stopped at several interesting places and go to see a good portion of this island. For the price, I would recommend it highly. It gives you just a sample of some things that otherwise would require a larger and time investment.
