"Our guide, Zambo, would always tell us well in advance what we would be doing on the next day, what we had to bring, what we should wear etc. The food was always organised for us; they would always ask us beforehand what we wanted to eat. Everywhere we went they were expecting us and everything went smoothly. Zambo was an amazing guide! He was extremely knowledgeable, he had an answer for everything and he was very patient with our kids."Pirko Hamer (Sai Kung, Hong Kong) February 2017
"Our guide, Zambo, was amazing - he shared a huge depth of knowledge and did it all with a smile. Couldn't ask for more"Vanessa Thomas (New South Wales, Australia) May 2014
“Zambo is a truly superb guide. His knowledge of the islands and wildlife is of the highest standard and his enthusiasm for guiding us around his home was infectious. I particularly respected his awareness of safety at all times and his professionalism in dealing with difficulties wherever they arose. Zambo was very helpful whenever I had a problem (e.g. finding a working ATM) and went out of his way to solve problems for other participants.”Abigail Fox (Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand) November, 2012
“THE BEST! Give that kid a raise. I'm serious, he cares so much about his job. I loved that he had his camera with him and really was knowledgeable about EVERYTHING. We had some really difficult personalities in our group and he handled it with STYLE and professionalism.”Julia Wright (Brooklyn, New York, United States) April, 2011
