All went well from the start, picked up almost on time, our guide was amazing, so friendly and explained a lot about Gozo. Which is a lovely island, we visited the Citadel, totally awesome, worth the climb. Lunch was ok. Really enjoyed the walk through the old city to get our bus, we thoroughly enjoyed our day.

I had a perfect day! The boat staff, the beauty of the place, the visits and explanations... everything was great To do without hesitation

He was very helpful. He helped my daughter and I find something to eat. He was very patient with such a great attitude.

Take food with you on the boat because it is not profitable to pay for the food on the boat or on the islands

Great experience! It takes at least 4 hours to fully enjoy the lagoon! Caring staff! I recommend 100%
