Great value for the price! Our group was so fun. Only thing I was was that there was fresh water or a snack that came with it as the sun and swimming is tiring. Other than that the staff was incrediebly kind and patient. Would recommend to all!! Thanks Team!

I love this exhilarating trip exploring the coast, coves and colourful houses. Alex was simply amazing as our guide, and introduced us to the natural beauty as well as the local history and culture. I had a fantastic ride and took lots of beautiful pictures. We also had the chance to swim or snorkel at a gorgeous location without any other people. Alex very kindly guided me in the water and pointed lovely fish to me. The view was amazing! Thank you so much for this unforgettable and utterly enjoyable experience!!

We really enjoyed the boat tour to the Calanques of the Esterel. It was one of our highlights on our holiday at the Côte d’Azur. We got to see the surroundings and the impressive properties, as well as the stunning nature around the Esterel Nationalpark. Our guide Jeremy was really nice and accommodating, he showed us underwater caves and we got to dive through them. Just be careful when you do it, as the rocks are sharp. And the lady at check-in was super nice as well. We were running a bit late due to train delays in Nice, but they waited for us. At the end of the tour she even helped us with getting the right bus to Cannes and charging our phones. I can strongly recommend Black Tender events and the boat tour. Thank you Jeremy and the lady at check-in :)
