What people are saying about Sardinia

Very nice excursion with the friendly boatswain Antonio, who provided us with homemade pastries and drinks. Due to the weather conditions, he changed his plans at short notice and headed for a different destination. At the original location, it would have been too windy for snorkeling. Nevertheless, we found two nice spots and also saw dolphins.

Amazing experience, the staff of this company are incredible, super nice people. It was a really blessing morning, we got to observe some dolphins on the sea and the snorkeling was also fantastic, really beautiful area with a lot of sea life to observe and admire.

Wonderful tour with an extremely friendly and competent guide. Time flew by, saw dolphins, 1a snorkeling spots and delicious snacks. Thanks Antonio Tour overall very recommendable!!!!

Excellent value, videos had English subtitles and were informative! The train itself was in Italian, but we were able to ask questions to the guide afterwards.

The booking was moved to a different time, but we saw 6 dolphins.
