What people are saying about Cagliari

we (3 adults) enjoyed the bike tour with our guide ivan a lot! it‘s always a great opportunity to see as much as possible of a city, esp. if there‘s not too much time to explore it. the bikes are solid and well maintained, each one has a little basket attached which is useful for bags etc. ivan shared interesting facts about cagliari‘s history and before the tour ended, we were invited for a coffee break in a nice café. to sum it up, i can recommend to book the tour.

I highly recommend you book this experience, it is amazing! Isabella and Valerio are very kind and funny people. They picked us up and drove us to a beautiful house were we took the pasta making class. Every step was explained very well and they were very supportive and encouraging in their teaching methods, which was great because I am a far from natural cook :-) After the class we enjoyed some delicious snacks, drinks and our self-made pasta in their lovely garden.

We had a wonderful afternoon with great conversations and even better food. Isabella and Valerio are super nice people and the pasta making was a lot of fun. I was so in love with the bread Valerio baked that he gave me a quarter of it and I smuggled it home :-) I would highly recommend!

The travel was very well organised, everything was on time, the guide Valerya wa really nice and competent- tells us a lot of very interesting facts about Sardinian history and attractions. Really recommend this bike tour.

Laura was a great tour guide! We had a wonderful day.
