  • Lowell 11 Nov 2018
    Nice view but the transfer via speedboat is hell. If not for the firefly watching, I would have given this 2 star.
  • Angel Allyne 9 Nov 2018
    It was okay. The guide was okay going to Mantanani. We've been with Chinese people so they need to translate every once in a while. Mantanani is meh but the fireflies are absolutely gorgeous. I will go back just for those. And we saw monkeys and wildlife if you're into that.
  • KIEN YAP 24 Oct 2018
    Wonderful trip with beautiful Mantanani Islands, Unique Exprience to explore fireflies, amazing snorkelling experience, best sunset I seen ever. Overall for this tour 90%
  • KUAN YU 13 Oct 2018
    Mantanani Island was perfect! We saw a lot of fireflies in the river side that was really moved. But the local tour-guides men attract fireflies with flashlight in order to entertain over- excited tourists, that does interfere the nature and should be strictly forbidden.
  • Karen Nicole 3 Oct 2018
    This day was full of adventure and new experiences foe us. It was truly a great value for your money. We enjoyed the beautiful beach and the snorkeling. However, the most memorable was the might river cruise where we saw the magnificent fireflies. we were lucky that day since there were a lot and it felt magical.
  • Louie Mae 24 Sep 2018
    Had a great time during the whole tour however I was not able to see the proboscis monekt bec it rains. But all in all very convenient
  • Marie Ariane Mae 24 Sep 2018
    Tourist guides are very friendly. They took really good care of us. Lunch is very good too!
  • Eduardo 23 Sep 2018
    spending time in Mantanani was a fun experience. It was our first time to spend our anniversary outside of our own country and Mantanani did not fail us. Our boat ride leveled up our journey even more and it was tantamount to a roller coaster ride. Everyone was having fun on the boat.
  • CHUN HIM 12 Sep 2018
    My friend and I had a very exciting ride to the island due to big waves. We saw quite a lot of fish during scuba diving. Fireflies at night were impressively amazing. Lunch and dinner did not taste so well, but the afternoon snacks were nice. As we were combined into a group with mainland Chinese guests, coaches seemed to be a little bit rude. Since there were a few different groups visiting that day, we were confused who was actually our guide as they passed us to different persons throughout the day. But overall the trip was good!
