Top of the line experience! The skippers were adorable, they made us discover two magnificent bays, and even some archaeological treasures! We had at our disposal drinks, fresh fruit, and all the necessary equipment to snorkel, I recommend this activity to everyone, the boat is beautiful, the staff brilliant, and all that for a more than reasonable price !!
The organization of the tour was again very good from AZ. No matter where I am, I always book all tours through GetYourGuide and I am always enthusiastic. We were very satisfied with the tour, everything was well organized and I think I will repeat that again ... Thank you very much
Our captain Anis and his assistant George made it possible for us to have a wonderful day. They showed us beautiful bays with great bathing places and also gave us the choice of how long we wanted to stay where. They also fed us very well. It was a great experience. Lovely again.
Great experience! So great that in the end you are almost sad that it's over. Definitely recommendable!
Great tour - personable skipper - great, delicious food - unique experience! We recommend! ☺
