My husband and I booked this last minute and had a wonderful evening. The boat ride was tons of fun and our boat driver was hilarious. We were the only English speaking people on the boat but he was quite a comedian. The views are spectacular and it was definitely worth doing a sunset tour. We’d highly recommend this adventure.

The visit was nice the walk was not too long but we were able to take some nice pictures the guides served us a friendly aperitif but what I preferred was when we left with this magnificent sunset and Corsican songs

We loved being able to go at our own pace. The electric bikes were great, and the trip to "the tower" was delightful. Things got a little "hairy" in town with the traffic, but we were able to navigate it.

Was a really nice experience! Just the boat trip in itself was quite an experience, as well as discovering the island at your own pace & seeing a sunset on the water!

Beautiful boat-trip! The moment of the sunset including the music was amazing. The boat is quite fast :-)
