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.
