We did the Mai Tours self guided tour recently and greatly enjoyed it. The MP3 players are easy to use, the information is presented in a clear and entertaining manner, and being able to pace the tour yourself is a big bonus. There are quite a few places on Raro where you might like to stop a bit longer, and the organised tours don't allow for that (we also did a jungle safari 4wd type trip, which wasn't nearly as flexible or informative overall, with one or two exceptions).
Cost-wise, Mai Tours was also better, with both of us able to enjoy the tour for only a third of the 4wd tour cost (for the pair of us). There aren't any entry costs to look at the places either tour takes you through, and the extra cost of the 4wd tour didn't justify against the fuel cost of the self guided tour, and it's also a great way to orient yourself to the island if you do it at the beginning of your visit. Definitely recommend the cheaper and better option of Mai Tours if you plan to do a tour!
