My husband, my eight year old and I went on a dolphin tour with island stop on the 27th July, 2015. Booking was really easy and they were more than happy and confident in supplying a gluten free packed lunch for my hubby. Everyone we dealt with was polite and friendly and full of information. Excellent customer service. The tour... More
