The experience was great! I had a lot of emotions from the tour, the views were stunning and sometimes it was a real struggle to move the kayak, but the guide Tomas was very helpful when we were stuck, and the general vibe was great. Also there were just 4 of us and the guide, so it was quite comfortable to be in a smaller group, Tomas also were telling us some stories about the beaches and the cliffs and had some nice snack prepared. Strongly recommended, but better take some sunglasses and a hat to protect you from the sun and the salty water getting into your eyes from rowing :)

A very nice tour with impressive places. The photos cannot convey what it is like to experience this landscape up close. Our guide Tomas had details about the area and the history. He responded to questions and requests from our (small) group. It was more of a trip with friends rather than a guided tour where one person sets the tone and everyone just follows him. We felt really well looked after and our son (6) didn't want to go back to the starting point.

excellent guide, very talkative) it turned out that we had a private tour, there was no one except us

We really enjoyed our morning kayaking. Great guide, small group, and an all round fun experience.

Great sea kayak trip. Lots of interest along the way, and well paced.
