We had a very nice zip line tour with two funny and competent guides. We always felt save and had a lot of fun. The tour delivers excellent views and there was enough time to take photos. In total we needed 1,5 hours.

Nice activity with a bit of action. Silvio & Antonio funny and helpful guides. For 75€ in my opinion it could be more ziplining instead of waiting because of other people.

A really nice day with nice people on board. We laughed a lot and had fun. Tommy and his crew took great care of his guests. Everyone enjoyed lunch. Always my pleasure!!!

A mega experience with a great view of the sea. The length of the individual stations are perfect. This experience is worth the money.

We felt very comfortable, everything was well thought out and safe
