The visit was nice the walk was not too long but we were able to take some nice pictures the guides served us a friendly aperitif but what I preferred was when we left with this magnificent sunset and Corsican songs

We loved being able to go at our own pace. The electric bikes were great, and the trip to "the tower" was delightful. Things got a little "hairy" in town with the traffic, but we were able to navigate it.

Was a really nice experience! Just the boat trip in itself was quite an experience, as well as discovering the island at your own pace & seeing a sunset on the water!

It was an amazing experience. Right from pick up to dune bashing belly dancing and almost everything else in the activity. Good job by the entire team. Keep it up.

Beautiful boat-trip! The moment of the sunset including the music was amazing. The boat is quite fast :-)
