We had a fantastic tour with Natour Sardinia and can highly recommend taking this trip! We were well looked after before and during the trip with regular updates and communication. Our daughter was ill and Carola rescheduled our tour for a different day. Rodolpho was a brilliant tour guide who adapted the tour brilliantly due to the weather. We enjoyed delicious snacks on board and the snorkelling was great with Rodolpho showing us some of the different fish. They had all the equipment we needed and we loved it!

This tour made for the PERFECT day - 7 hours flew by with the incredible places we visited, tour guides, and I love good food on a trip. We had at least 4 or 5 delicious courses, all tailored to exactly what you'd be craving at that time of day. My personal favorite moment was paddle boarding in the crystal blue waters, and eating traditional Sardinian pasta out of a bowl made from a seashell. So many small details made this such an incredible experience. I would absolutely go again!

Very nice day aboard the catamaran with a friendly and caring team. Everything was perfect, the places visited as well as the catering on board. Go for it, absolutely don’t hesitate.

Before choosing the tour, I read all (almost) the reviews. expectations were fully met! Advise !

Great day out - nice with a small group. All very easy to arrange. Hosts were great too.
