Very nice bus and boat experience. the "problem" was finding the sister restaurant for lunch. there are dozens of them in the area and finding the correct one was not easy because the name is not written on the meal voucher that they give you, this point could be improved.

Beautiful boat ride through nature and delicious food!!! There were three courses, all of which were very good, and very courteous service. Afterwards there was enough time to explore the place and admire the rice fields. The organization worked great. And it's not a mass event as is often the case with such tours!! Was very positively surprised :-) :-)

Nice boat trip, good food, simple but good paella, friendly service. price reasonable. bus driver ok But the organization was catastrophic: email reminder from GetYourGuide with the wrong time (12:30 instead of 13:07), consultation necessary. Nobody(!) knew when and where the bus was going back, no answer from the bus driver, all 3 couples walked around for more than 1 hour near the exit point instead of sitting longer in the restaurant or taking a walk through the town
