Our family had the best time. Cruising around the harbor, seeing the picturesque villages, swimming in secluded beaches, learning about the history. We brought our own picnic including a bottle of Prosecco. We loved our guide and we’re happy all day.

We got a very good first overview of the city during the tour. It was very entertaining and we visited interesting places that we probably wouldn't have found on our own. Very interesting and recommendable tour with a very nice guide.
