A kayak tour that will be remembered! It was a great tour including snorkeling time. Our guides were very warm and tried hard. Due to the small group (5 people) everyone could be considered. There was also time to relax and enjoy the breathtaking view. A really great experience that I would do again at any time and that I can recommend to everyone!

Manu has been an amazing guide/teacher for us on our first kayaking. We had an amazing time, amazing views and it was very active indeed. On top we have been snorkeling and saw a moraine! Amazing! Totally recommendable. Do it.
