Interesting local islands tour
NerineR1, 03-03-2020
We had a lovely walking day trip to two islands. I have hip problems and had to do the trip in a wheelchair with my husband pushing me. Unfortunately the weather was a bit rough and we could not snorkel or swim. But it was really enjoyable and our guide was very good.
Unfortunately we could not do the snorkeling trip because of the rough weather. The guides advised us against it. So it was a bit disappointing but a safer option. Thanks also for your very friendly service whilst we did the booking.
Exceptional tour services, amazing locations

We encountered this agency almost by chance and we used their services for 2 separate tours. All tour guides are extremely enthusiastic, friendly, competent and knowledgeable.
The tours available are very varied and all extremely exciting including pick-up from main island. The use of local resources (local ferries, local taxis, local restaurants) is a nice touch and makes you feel the real Maldivian experience.
One of the guides, Archie, made us an origami local boat (dhoni) using local leaves, extremely nice gesture that we will cherish for ever.
Another guide, UB, qualified diver and international lifeguard, gave confidence to my partner to swim and snorkel in the ocean taking her by hand despite her fears of deep water.
Even their youngest member, Anoof, during training, is extremely enthusiastic and helpful, able to give us some local hints and recommendations.
Would use their services again next time we are back.
Only recommendation: they accept only cash.
great day visiting local life and snorkeling

I did Mafushi and Gulhi . First we went to Mafushi and we walked around the island and my guide was very informative about the local life the plants the houses then we had a drink in a cafe then had local lunch then we moved to Gulhi and we had an idea about old ships building . Gulhi beach was soooooooo clean I had a chance to swim .
in our way back we stopped at a nice spot fofr snorkeling this spot was the best the water colour and the marine life was great ( first time i see turtle ) .
My guide was informative and took good care of me in snorkeling ( i am new in snorkeling )
The tour was well organised by secret paradise and it was great .
Thank you everyone
Stunning landscapes, very warm hosts!

We were welcomed by a very warm Farish, who is jovial and charming. Enjoyed the boat ride to Gulhi which has a spectacular beach. Farish was very attentive and answered all our incessant questions about local culture, food, history, marine life of Maldives. He knows his home well. It was my first time snorkelling and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor, Farish was patient and calmed me. The blue waters of Maldives hold a lot of colourful secrets-fishes and corals. Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a slice of Maldivian life, I learnt a lot.
