This was an amazing tour by our guide Areg. My 11 year old daughter and I opted for the private tour and Areg certainly did not disappoint. He was very polite, friendly, kind, patient and informative and gave us a few recommendations for places to visit and eat. We were able to have a practice run of our segways after he explained how to use them before guiding us on our adventure which was lots of fun. This practice was not part of the hour that we had booked. He showed us several landmarks detailing his extensive knowledge about each one. We would definitely recommend. Booking early on in your trip would be a good idea as, like us, you may find some hidden gems that you may wish to return to before you leave.

Primary success criteria for a dolphin cruise is of course to see dolphins and we did. Despite being a Saturday (no fishing boats out) Jason the captain found a group of dolphins which we followed for about an hour. It was magnificent to see them jump or play at the stern of the yacht. After we went swimming from the boat out on the sea. Besides that the yacht is very nice and comfortable and powerful enough to keep up with the dolphins. Crew Jason and Alfonso were very pleasant and helpful and the service was great. We had a really good experience.

Excellent, very friendly and on the ball staff. It didn't take long (35mins) before we saw lots of dolphins and we had some time for a swim too. Highly recommended

Very friendly stuff. The trip to Gibraltar went smoothly and we were very happy. Highly recommended!

It was a great trip with excellent guide. We enjoyed it very much.
