The tour was just beyond amazing. The staff were so friendly. We stopped by a mosque, hunting house, fortress, and fishing village. The sailing at the end of the trip to reach our swimming spot was just so relaxing. Everything about this trip was perfect, we travelled as a family of five and each one of us felt like it was the ideal way to spend the day. would definitely recommend it!!
