Fantastic tour - certainly one of the best we've ever done.
Tam was great and we loved visiting the village and tasting the fruit from their land.
The folk singing was beautiful and made us fee very welcome.
Really loved the long boat ride - could have been longer as it was so pleasant in the cool of the palms.
