Great tour, the guide Cao was really patient and always very fun. The path was difficult on some parts which I didn’t expect but I was happy that it was a serious hike and not just a walk on the mountains. After the hike we got a delicious local wine and cheese tasting. Also Cao was very kind to ride us to the beach which was quite far . Definitely I recommend !!

Absolutely superb tour, saw plenty of dolphins and whales. The captain and his crew were very knowledgable and were super friendly. Would highly recommend.

Had a great time.. would recommend booking the 10 am trip so as to avoid the scorching afternoon sun.
