The experience was truly excellent, with the guides being thoughtful to reorganise this trip when some unpredictable circumstances occurred.

It was great. The travel was is a small boat, about 8 people. It felt less touristy at first, but then the beaches were very crowded. Very, very beautiful tough! Our guide Stefano was very friendly and had great explanation about the creeks, beaches, rock formations, etc. Very good experience overall.

For us it was one of the best days in Sardinia. Our guide was an amazing person, snorkeling was fun and those beaches are beautiful. That’s what we would call paradise. So we definitely felt in love and recommended this tour. Crazie!

Fantastic trip, high high recommended! For us the best trip in the whole vacations in Corsica and Sardinia, also thanks to Antonello! He made the day and the trip even better! Christian & Leire

A good tour through several beaches of the Gulf of Orisei otherwise unreachable by car. Simply a must when visiting Sardinia.
