What people are saying about Ajaccio

the processing at the ticket counter was totally unproblematic. Would work well even without knowledge of French. The trip was great, the crew was really nice and up for a joke. We saw dolphins. we didn't regret taking the ship instead of driving.

Great tour .... The only flaws are the French language only and the time available on the island is very scarce! I still recommend going up to the lighthouse, fantastic view

Excellent crossing to the island and for the return with a big heat in full sun and no shade to protect the children

Very nice activity! The discovery of the Gulf and the Sanguinaires by boat is magnificent!

walk not to be missed!!! we take full eyes. top notch crew!!!!
