Booking with this company was very easy. We were picked up on time from our hotel. We enjoyed the tour. Staff were knowledgeable about the wildlife (we saw whales, spotted dolphins and mating sea turtles).

It's a fun tour, about two hours on the river watching all sorts of animals and a short walk to a waterfall where you can go for a swim. Would do it again!
