I joined the full day adventure with my boyfriend back in February 2020. The tour is really incredible, I personally took this tour before heading to a remote island to see some different scenarios but I would highly recommend it also to people that only have 1-2 days in

Hi there, Thanks for your review, hope you are both safe and well. Was great to have you guys travel with us earlier this year, it seems almost a lifetime ago. Glad to hear you enjoyed your couple of days with Mash. You chose well combining the full day adventure and a half day Male tour, allowing you to experience the beauty of the Maldives as well as gain an insight to the country as you started your trip. Thanks again for taking the time to write your review and we look forward to welcoming you in the future. Kines Regards Ruth

After 3 relaxing days at a private resort island, we were ready for something different. The infinity pool, buffet, pampering, and fellow tourists were all fun, but we were ready to see the real Maldives. We took Secret Paradise's 7-night North Ari Island Hopping tour. WHAT

We had a lovely walking day trip to two islands. I have hip problems and had to do the trip in a wheelchair with my husband pushing me. Unfortunately the weather was a bit rough and we could not snorkel or swim. But it was really enjoyable and our guide was very good.

Hi Nerine Thank you for your review it is appreciated. You were so unlucky with the weather during your short stay but given we had to cancel your tour the previous day due to the weather conditions, I am pleased we were able to get you out and about island hopping even if for safety reasons you couldn't get in the water. A reason perhaps to return?! Glad that you both enjoyed and were able to experience local life if not the sunshine and blue skies for which the Maldives is known. I will share your feedback with UB and the team and hope that our paths may cross again in the future. Wishing you all the best with your hip operation and a speedy recovery. Kind Regards Ruth

Hey there! It was lovely to meet you both when you dropped by the office, Mash was pleased to learn that your chance meeting in Male whilst he was on tour resulted in you locating us! Thank you for taking time to post your review and great to hear you enjoyed your two days with the team, I am sure you have returned home with many memories. As a local tour company we pride ourselves on providing 100% local employment, supporting local businesses and services as well as of course providing local experiences for our guests. Unfortunately whilst not ideal for everyone, we are only able to accept cash payments for day tours as the cost for a small business to have POS facilities is stupidly high that we don't feel the necessity to offer or to have to pass these charges onto our guests. We do however accept cash payments in USD or local currency. Thanks again for your review, hope you enjoyed the remainder of your stay in the Maldives and maybe we can welcome you again in the future. Kind Regards Ruth
