Our tour was simply amazing. They took care of everything, even when they found out we had not booked a hotel for a night after staying with them, they found us a hotel and bartered for a discount. The guides are knowledgeable and shape your trip based on your desires. They did everything they could to make it the best stay possible. Our guide Ashoku, made sure that our son saw the things that he really wanted to see while we were there. Monkey Island was simply the best thing that we could imagine. They are so happy and healthy. Thank you so much Maniti for giving us the BEST vacation. Something we will never forget!!!
