We had an amazing day full of adventures, Komand was our guide and was very knowledgable and considerate and looked after us throughout the day. Our most favourite part of the day was canyoning, it was very physical but so much fun. We enjoyed every moment of this trip.

A really great experience. Both the guides were awesome and made the trip good fun. Would definitely recommend to a friend. As a solo traveller it was one of my favourite days I’ve had. Thanks guys!

Our guide was extremely efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. He took us through multiple stops and was able to change plans easily due to weather conditions.

We enjoyed this trip. Diamond Beach was amazing and Desa, our driver and guide, was friendly and took us a lot of pictures. Thank you!
