1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The marine biologist for a day trip and the jeep tour.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Check for any festivals that are happening while youíre out there and make sure you book restaurants in advance for dinner. We were not aware of the White Festival and could not find anywhere to eat that night!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It supported local people in that all our guides were local and secured their jobs, but I would say like for any plane journey it had an environmental impact.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Five star :)

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Swimming with wild dolphins - amazing!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take travel sickness pills if the water is choppy! Be prepared for very capricious weather!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - the whale and dolphin trips seem animal friendly - the cetaceans are not disturbed as there are rules about keeping distance and there are not that many boats. The boat trip operators include marine biologists who are knowledgeable about and interested in protecting the sea. Itís clear that local people are interested in protecting the environment. Tourism is an important industry which definitely benefits the locals.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Great - a really relaxed place. We wish we could have stayed longer!
