Excellent kayak tour, with very friendly guides. After a short introduction, you just go into the water with your boat and you’ll have fun. Especially during the short stops, where you can jump into the sea and climb back on your kayak. Even a small snack was provided. Doesn’t matter if it’s your first time in a kayak or not, they took care of every levels of skill and speed. So everyone can enjoy this trip with a beautiful view of the Sella del Diavolo. Thanks again for the great experience!

Recommendation! Our two tour guides were really kind and told us a lot about sardinien culture and Cagliari itself. They brought us to really nice beaches which aren’t well known by a lot of tourists. It was a pleasure to swim and sunbath there.

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.

Claudia is a great guide as well as the driver. Very nice tour where you can see and have time to enjoy different beaches. Also great that they give you umbrella and a gopro to take pics in the water!
