Great, but in terms of safety, a few precautions for swimming in my humble opinion would not be a luxury.. do not go swimming by diving directly into icy water after 2 hours in direct sunlight, no lifebuoy seen, explain that we don't run on a boat...some are not used to it...in short, otherwise top reception, meals, atmosphere, thank you! I recommend.. even if we didn't see a private beach, we actually dropped anchor in the open sea.. so those who are afraid of swimming in deep water may have had children, I think, must have hesitated to swim, I loved it! Too bad also not to have some explanations on what we see, port, coast, landscapes... or a small multilingual prospectus with a plan...

It was a very nice experience for my husband and I! Great trip, beautiful sights and amazing staff. A huge thank you to Nicole! The view when you get to the peak is amazing. I highly recommend it to everyone.

An excellent experience & great escape from the bustling city. We would absolutely recommend this trip - the tour guide Rafa was extremely knowledgeable & friendly.

Toffe beleving na enkele dagen in de stad, fantastisch uitzicht vanop de bergtop. Heel aangename en sympathieke gidsen, een aanrader.

Nicole was so much fun and driving the hero was a great experience! Don’t miss this one!
