Good arrangement and the tour guide is helpful. However, the meal provided was poor and disappointing :(


A beautiful place.. the tour guide is good, one day is not enough but it's worth to go there again!!! Brilliant!!! Mantanani snorkeling is nice!!


Nice season , not many peoples !


The whole activity was suberbly carried out. It was unfortunate that it started raining in the evening and we were not able to do the river cruise


Had the snorkeling only package. Great deal. Mantanani island is beautiful and snorkeling there was an experience.
