What people are saying about Porto Istana

Because of the weather conditions, we were asked if we would rather do the tour in the evening. This was ok for us and so we were allowed to choose from 2 beaches. The meeting point was clear and the teachers were there at the agreed time. Super friendly, cordial, explained everything to us at the beginning and then went outside to enjoy the sunset. Instead of fruit and juice, there was an aperitif on the sea. They took many photos of us so that we have memories of this great experience. Also 3 hours with the paddle is exactly ideal.. I would recommend it to everyone! THANKS !
