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

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!

A wonderful moment. Breathtaking ride. Aperitif more than enough. Sunset, just sublime. Welcome guides perfect. I recommend without hesitation.

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