What people are saying about Cagliari

We had a great trip to Chia. Our driver showed us the hidden gems of the island, and had a lot of knowledge about the area. We got to swim in crystal-clear waters. The trip was amazing! Remember to bring a waterproof bag because the trip can get wet.

It is very interesting to discover the history of the Salina, the journey by train is a further journey into the life of the Salina. A compliment to Stefano for running the route and to all the operators who enrich the Salina.

Very pleasant and helpful team! The tour was in Italian, but during a break the guide came to explain to us how the saltworks work in English. I recommend this tour!

Excellent value, videos had English subtitles and were informative! The train itself was in Italian, but we were able to ask questions to the guide afterwards.

Very instructive trip with very beautiful photos at the end of the day
