Very pleasant excursion The water is transparent, it's magnificent!! The fish were fed in order to observe them underwater. It was fun. Unfortunately no dolphins… the guide told us that the dolphins are in the north of the island and only come out in winter. The water being warm, there were jellyfish. One of the passengers even got bitten. So we shortened the swims.

We had a very nice, relaxed and interesting bike ride. Our guide Francesca inspired us at every stop with information about the respective spots and the city. In addition to the flamingos, we also saw dolphins in the harbor. Recommended tour. Many thanks again to Francesca. Very friendly and accommodating and a wonderful bike ride. We had a lot of fun.

It was a wonderful bike tour to the port and national park, the guide is very humorous and full of interesting facts. We not only saw flamingos in the national park but also dolphins in the port. I could also know new interesting people. I would recommend

We had a great trip to Chia. Our driver showed us the hidden gems of the island, and had a lot of knowledge about the area. We got to swim in crystal-clear waters. The trip was amazing! Remember to bring a waterproof bag because the trip can get wet.

Great boat tour with a really great Sardinian skipper
