Guide Ayesh took us to a great tour into Mangrove National Park. We enjoyed it 100%! The attitude was great (guide told us that he wants to make us happy and we can take as much time as we want), lots of positive impressions and good photos! Highly recommended. P.S. check that you are going in on a high tide, otherwise you won't be able to sail right into the Mangroves.

We were the only ones on the 5:30am tour. So we had the opportunity to take some more pictures. The tour is great fun and a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Especially the sunrise in the mangrove forests is very impressive and worthwhile. Besides, it's not that hot there. We would definitely book again at 5:30 and highly recommend the tour.
