The experience was really good. The guide and the driver were very friendly. Even though it was winter,we went half way into caves and it was fun :)

An absolutely wonderful experience. You will be taken care of extremely well from start to finish. Very reasonably priced for 4+ hours. I highly recommend this boat tour company.
