Went with two friends for the over night Houseboat trip, it was wonderful. Victor and his crew made us very welcome, plenty of food and drinks, Dinner was great so much of it. Very clean and comfortable cabins. Saw some lovely birds and a large crocodile. We will be back next year for another trip, very enjoyable, Thank you.

This is two years on the trot that I have used Johns Boat Tours. He gives value for money. If you go on a trip that you get food on you get FRESH food from a bakery on the way out to the location. I can recommend the Crocodile Dundee trip, going down the river in a small boat, We... More

Dolphin sighting was good. John boat tour lasts 4-5hrs. They serve lunch & drinks as well which makes it a good option for leisure travellers. Boatmen are friendly & hospitable. They go can extra mile to search for dolphins & ensure comfort of guests.

In the interests of balance, I'll start with the only (minor) negatives. Firstly, these guys don't take plastic and need paying in advance so add some bank charges to their prices. Secondly, divining exactly where you get picked up can take a while. However, it is MORE THAN worth it. Firstly the boat is such an idyllic craft in a... More

We went on the overnight boat trip. We shared the experience with another couple who we met on the day who were great company. The boat itself is fantastic, the rooms/bathrooms were clean and had everything needed for an overnight trip. The guys manning the boat were fantastic, always willing to help and made sure we were well looked after.... More

Went into John's Office on Fort Aguada Road and found a helpful gentleman who booked our trip very efficiently. He explained the details of the trip and where the pick up point was. Trip itself was brilliant. Dolphin spotting, drinks on board and a guided tour around the bay till we got to the little beach where we had a... More

We booked the elephant day trip through Johns Boat Tours which cost an huge £68.00 per person. When we arrived at the shop to get picked up by the taxi there was a man (presume he was the owner) who was very rude and made no effort to speak to us or welcome us. The taxi picked us up and... More
