Tour description provided by Viator

For many years we’ve had young passengers say to us that just because they are young, doesn’t mean they don’t want some luxury while on tour. We agreed and felt like there wasn’t really a market for these 'Young Professional' passengers. Their only option was to join an oldies tour if they wanted some luxury travel, but run the risk of having no one in their age group to hang with.To cater for this we decided to mix both styles, budget and luxury. Our tours still come into the budget-pricing category but we are able to offer a more stylish tour. Basically with us you get a Ferrari on a Toyota budget!We’ve joined forces and are here to put all the great ideas collected along the way into our amazing tours.We have new A+ category boats with private en-suites and air-conditioned cabins at no extra cost. We have a local chef on board with us smashing out some amazing dishes to keep your belly full. But most importantly, our Koda Sail team are amazing and have loads of experience.
