Andy's review for another Explore tour
“This is the second time we've done this trip, and we'd do it again as it's perfect for a bit of "down time" after a more arduous holiday elsewhere in Asia. We think this is a jewel in Explore's portfolio - it is exceptional value for money, and in our view the very best way to see the Maldives.”
