Our guide was very friendly and spoke several languages, which is an advantage for international guests. He told us a lot about the area, the people and the vegetation. It was very entertaining and interesting. The tour went over the mountains on a really bumpy unpaved road (but that's one of the special experiences of this tour :-)! The jeep put up with it easily and the driver was able to handle it well. On the mountain you had a wonderful view! There were a few more beautiful spots along the way where you could take photos, before finally heading to the sea, where there were two beaches with amazing clear turquoise water! Snorkeling equipment was provided and so we spent 4 hours relaxing on the beach before heading back to Cagliari to the end point!

Super fun day out! Would definitely recommend to anyone, whether travelling alone or with a group. Our guide Antonio was fantastic, really fun guy and also told us so much about the history and culture that you wouldn’t learn anywhere else!

Very good. There were only four of us on this trip. The places that were shown to us were very beautiful. We were given diving goggles for swimming. There was no snorkel which was a shame.

The skipper was very friendly and told us about the different stops. Cala Zafferano is incredible, the color of the sea is amazing, the jumps in the wind were worth it! ;)

Superb getaway with a guide who showed us the different places. Guide very attentive to our desires, the time we spent swimming, diving etc. Great, I recommend
