What people are saying about Porto Torres

It is a very worthwhile destination to do a bike tour on Asinara. With the good bikes it was possible to cover 40 km without much agitation and still have enough time for swimming, photos and lunch. Since there are only a few ferries, you are almost alone on dream beaches! Very very worthwhile ;)

Very knowledgeable, friendly guides and above all more than willing to answer questions and special requests, compatibly with the timing of the activity. More than recommended!

Amazing experience and professional guidance ! The caves and beaches were amazing
