It was our first time visiting Sardinia from Scotland and we can’t thank Carlo enough for such a wonderful experience. It was a perfect day to see Cagliari’s beautiful coastline and crystal clear waters. Carlo was so friendly and a fantastic guide. An unforgettable experience which we will remember for a lifetime! A must for visiting Cagliari, you won’t regret it!

It was just a really nice trip. Despite the sometimes not so good weather, the guide was always in a good mood and told interesting things about many different rocks and caves. You can also tell that he has years of experience in kayaking. A very friendly guide! All in all it was the best day of our vacation. Thank you again!

We had a lot of fun on the tour. The swimming stops were great. The landscape and the Teufelssattel are also really worth seeing. At the end we even got to see dolphins! Thank you very much for this beautiful tour, which we will certainly remember for a long time.

A brilliant boat trip, our skipper was great fun and kept us entertained throughout. We saw some wild dolphins even before we'd left the harbour! The places we swam in were gorgeous, with crystal clear water. Loved it!

It was an incredible afternoon, in which the weather is good and we can stop at all the established points and be able to swim. The guide was super attentive at all times and pleasant. Super super recommended.
