Porto: Scandola, Girolata, and Calanches of Piana Boat Trip
- Small group
- Duration: 3 hours
Beautiful scenery and thoroughly enjoyed the time to walk on the Sanguinaires. However, whilst the tour is clearly promoted as guided in French, it also mentions booklets in at least two other languages. There were no booklets so if you don’t understand French, the only way to learn about the area is to research it yourself.
The comments from the skipper were rich and interesting. The boat was full, therefore not easy to look everything he was mentioning. We felt uncomfortable being dropped 30mn to this small fishing village. We felt as if “you have 30mn to spy on how people live there, and rush back to the boat”. Unnecessary in the trip.
Our guide serge was lovely. He really made the experience pleasurable. We saw wonderful villages and the pace was great even with a 8 year old. We had incredible lunch at Lumio, San Antonio and Pigna were gorgeous. Got a feeling of seeing the real Corsica with this tour! Totally worth the time and money.
The views are amazing and you have time enough to contemplate all the beautiful landscape of scandola and the calanques. But we will loved to have the guide’s explanations in english, we dont understand french so we missed this part. Even though it was really funny. Thanks!
Everything as planned, good explanations and tidy boat, but but I'd suggest a smaller one with a smaller group so you can get a more human experience, dive from the boat (we went to swim on the beach stop) and see the calanques closer.
