Memorable day! An excursion not to be missed. Wealth of the landscapes …comments ….dream beach (rather swimming pool) and 24 kms of track in this “desert” and this Corsican maquis. It's true it's moving but JLuc had such dexterity in driving that it was more impressive to see than to suffer. We shared this air-conditioned and comfortable luxury 4/4 with 2 other friendly couples, which made this trip very pleasant and we had a good laugh. The picnic offered was very good and frees you to fully enjoy the day Thank you Jean Luc we will do it again next year without hesitation

The guide Capucine was really nice and her colleague Damien too. A real pleasure to share this moment with them. The journey itself is rather calm, there is little off-roading. Several stops allow you to punctuate the journey and take photos. The stop in the natural swimming pool is magnificent! We highly recommend

Incredible trip! Enriching from a cultural point of view and magnificent between sea and mountains, the landscapes are breathtaking!! The stop in the waterfalls and natural rivers amazed us! Swimming was fun! A huge plus for Damien!! An awesome guide! Thanks to him !!!

An unforgettable moment when we discover Corsica in all its splendor both in the landscape and in the comments of our friendly guide!

the day was really relaxing, the staff super helpful and the food very good
