What people are saying about Ajaccio

The Captain of the boat made us share the magical moment of the sunset. We really liked the aperitif with tasting of Corsican charcuterie and a special mention for the cheese!! And of course the return with the Corsican songs. A big thank-you

Great tour .... The only flaws are the French language only and the time available on the island is very scarce! I still recommend going up to the lighthouse, fantastic view

It was perfect, the instructors were very attentive and professional but also amusing, we recommend !

Very nice activity! The discovery of the Gulf and the Sanguinaires by boat is magnificent!

Cadre enchanteur, équipage aux petits soins avec mets et vins de qualité, superbe !
