Harry, the driver was very friendly.
There was a bit of confusion with the itinirary initially, he didn't know the caves and a few other things were included until I read out the itinerary to him. As I was only one person he was accommodating.
He even offered to return an item I left in his car, but never did, but kept sending me messages.

A lot more pricey than advertised though, it was a special of AU$82 when I booked but final price came out to be double that. Kept going back to check if the currency was right (and not US$) but it seemed to be.

The boat ride to see the fireflies was just that, a boat ride. Unfortunately there was no information given while on the boat, regarding the fireflies and why so many are in that particular area, or if there is a season for them, nothing. So that was a bit disappointing and like all things, nothing like what is advertised.
