We had great tour over the island. Our guide Dipa was super helpful. He was asking about our preferences, what we would like to see, was making a lot of suggestions. Highly recommend!

It was really fantastic, you get a good overview of the island and my guide told me about life on the island and took me to a typical, local restaurant. Deepack was great, super nice!

Cool tour, positive guides. Because of the coronavirus, I got a private tour. We visited interesting places with street food and the guys told about the history of the city.

Easy to book and Access. Take nice shoes to walk around and a bottle of water.
