Great trip with top guide!

We thought it might be too hot but a slight breeze off the water made conditions great. We saw lots of wading birds and learnt a little about the history and culture of the region while enjoying a decent bike ride and varying scenery. Me and my wife, who are bike riders but in our late 50s, strongly recommend this trip.

Pleasant walk

We appreciated the moderate effort, the airy area by the sea, the salt flats, the rare birds, the guide's explanations, The comfort of the bikes. On the other hand, the meeting point, could be in a slightly wilder area to enjoy your areas a little longer from the airport.
