    It was great to learn about Maldivian culture during this tour. We went to the fish market, local market, Grand Friday mosque, Old Friday mosque, Sultan park, Victory monument, and other attractions. Kamey was one of the best guides that I've ever had from any city. He developed good rapport with my younger kids and made things fun for them. He also taught me a lot about the history and people of Maldives.

    We had a few hours in Malê for a layover and wanted to see a bit of the city. Mohammed was an amazing guide, he picked us up at the airport and took us on a tour of Hulhulé and Malé. It was educational and informative. He then ensure we had great authentic Maldivian lunch before dropping us off. I would definitely recommend this tour if you have a few hours in Malé.

    It is really the only activity to do in Malé.

    Being on a submarine is something different and you do get to see different fish at the bottom of the reef.

    Once we arrived at the submarine pontoon we had to wait an hour before the submarine could leave. I think this was due to weather but no information was given.
    No information about the reef or the fish was given either.

    Not great but if you have few hours to kill...

    I took their 4-hour walking tour around Male Island, instead of staying at the airport waiting. It was a very informative walking tour, taking the time to share about local history, daily life in Maldives and local traditions. The guide was very open to questions and he spoke perfectly English. The highlight of the tour was the market place, tasting local foods and seeing the people interacting. It was a wonderful time learn about culture and local customs.

    We had this tour booked to fill in time between leaving our resort and flying out of Male. Unfortunately, our flight from our resort was two hours late. When it eventually landed, however, our guide was waiting, but advised that many of the attractions were now closed and it would not be worthwhile doing the tour. He also advised that we would receive a full refund, which we did.

    Excellent customer service!

    Alex arranged my two weeks on Rasdhoo in November - December 2020. Communication was great; he was very responsive and helpful through several itinerary changes due to travel restrictions etc. I had a great time at Shallow Lagoon Rasdhoo, snorkeling the island reef, and going on six boat snorkel excursions. He is truly a Maldives expert and goes above and beyond in customer service.

    Through islandii.com and Alex, we could plan a budget-friendly and hassle-free trip to Maldives. Will come back again.

    What a trip that was, 25 days in PARADISE AND I could not say my trip in the Maldives would have ever been the same if it wasn’t for Ruth and her amazing team at Secret Paradise.

    I was travelling with two friends and we had so many doubts about what to do and what not to do. We were travelling from different places. Brazil and London..

    With covid the islands are working around a very different dynamic and their tailored packages fit our demands and budget perfectly.

    We have done both resort and local islands and I can’t wait to be back. The walking tours are amazing and I learned so much about the culture, language and Maldivian community with the local guides.

    I cannot recommend them enough we all had a great hassle-free trip thanks to them!

    We took this tour before we left Maldives. We were able to check our bags at the airport and then get a taxi to the pick up point.

    The guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history of both Male and the Maldives. We liked eating some of the local food, though we had been in Maldives for a week so had had some at the hotel.

    We did NOT like the art experience and would have preferred to do something else. They had us paint step by step a Maldives island. I don't need painting lessons and I don't need some small, not very good painting I made. A visit to another spot to learn more about history would have been preferred.

    My Guide Zaff made my week in Maafushi and the surrounding area AWESOME! The excursions were fun too! I highly recommend Secret Paradise for Budget Travelers looking for a real Maldives Experience. First I was picked up at the airport and given a tour of Male. Zaff even found me the islands best smoothies per request. I then made it over to Maafushi and enjoyed a huge room at Stingray Inn. I got to enjoy 2 really cool days of snorkeling, visiting 2 other islands, and plenty of time to chill out and enjoy the beach at Maafushi. Meals were good, the guide was great, and Ruth with Secret Paradise was excellent at accommodating all of my travel needs. 10/10 recommend!!

    The half day tour includes taking us to the local market for buying food and to the host family for lunch. It was unexpectedly good because the services from our guide and the host family were awesome. We could really taste the maldivian style of food and visit local house at Hulhumale. We will be back again.
