    The whole tour was very smooth, our guide (Nelson) was very nice and helpful. Been to different island tours that are not much organise. For this tour, they seperate their guest into different groups with each group having a few guides. The boat trip to the island from the jetty is a little bit bumpy, so I suggest to seat at the middle to back end of the boat, unless you would like to have a roller coaster ride, first and second row would be perfect. They allocated a great amount of time for snorkelling. The last highlight would be fireflies cruise, which is magnificent as there are plenty of fireflies to be seen.

    The actual itinerary doesn't follow the one listed on klook. Hotel pick up from KK at 8am instead of 7am. There are 2 Snorkeling sessions, but with only 30 minutes for each session, it just doesn't match the listed information which is 1 hour 30 minutes for 1 session. Lunch served at 2pm and the taste has nothing to write about. I am very disappointed with overall quality of the trip, however the place itself is nice..

    cheap price with great quality
  • Chaitali 27 Jan 2019
    well organised tour and the snorkeling experience was awesome. we we're lucky we got to do two snorkeling at two different spots it was totally worth it.
  • SEE WAI 24 Jan 2019
    We have cancelled this trip last minute the day before because of some personal issues. However we really looked forward to it. The agent had wtsapped me to inform me so we think it would be a responsible guide to lead our tour. What a pity we couldn't enjoy it.
  • Susanna 21 Jan 2019
    Very comphensive tour with actions, beautiful scenery & fun. Whole day tour save time for travelling.
  • YIK CHEONG 18 Jan 2019
    The entire island was beautiful and clean as the flora and fauna were well-preserved in the island.
  • Sien Yee Cindy 16 Jan 2019
    The island is very nice. Service is good, long travel but is worth to go for a visit. Crystal clear water, white sand, good seafood lunch, many fishes you can swim with. Just not very happy that you are not allow to take off the life jacket even if you are good swimmer.
  • Siu ming 3 Jan 2019
    It's a great trip with full day activities, including snorkeling, monkey and fireflies visiting. Start from the morning, and it takes over 2 hours to Mantanani Island for snorkeling. You can do snorkeling even you don't know how to swim, as they always provide staffs next to you during snorkeling. The quality of the food can be improved, and transportation take up lot of time. For round trip almost over 7 hours. And the tour guide can speak both Mandarin and English, but most of the time in Mandarin only.
  • Wei De Eric 26 Dec 2018
    Both the snorkeling (although apparently I could only do one location instead of two due to poor weather conditions) and the river cruise were enjoyable experiences. However please note that when other reviewers say that the boat rides are rough, they really mean it. I’ve taken similar boat rides elsewhere and they weren’t nearly as rough. Not advisable for kids and elderly in my view.
