    The experience was truly excellent, with the guides being thoughtful to reorganise this trip when some unpredictable circumstances occurred. Both the way up and down were truly beautiful and not that hard to do. the visit to the archaeological site was insightful and I did appreciate our guide pointing out mountains, canyons and plants that we would find along the way.

What a unexpected journey

We wanted a "different" tour in Cagliari, little did we know that we would get a hugely exciting and beautiful tour with stunning views, botany, archeology, culture and general camaraderie and information from our guides (also some extra new years sweets baked by one of the guides sisters thrown in)! Really this is a trip for anyone who really wants to see the beauty of Sardinia including its rich history, lore and nature. It was clear they could easily adjust the tour for any sort of fitness level, but being moderately fit, we had no issues with getting about.

Fantastic experience that allowed us to get to know Sardinia even more outside the beach. The guide proved to be very competent. After picking us up in the village, we left in his jeep, we started the trek to the slopes of the mountain, reached and visited the archaeological site of Tiscali and then we started the descent. Come prepared: hiking shoes and adventurous attitude!
