My husband and I took this trip on our honeymoon. The bus picked us up and took us to the sea port. The boat we were on served food and drinks... they even had a happy hour! We were taken to two beautiful beaches. Would totally do this again. Price wise it was kind of silly because you’re not paying for a tour, you’re paying for the bus ride but it was nice to have to all taken care of for you!
