Excellent day. Very relaxing. We saw 3 beautiful beaches for over 1.5 hours each that you cannot reach unless on a boat. We saw many natural beautiful features on the Sardinian coast, and our guide was excellent, he was great fun and impressively could speak most European languages pretty well! Would highly recommend it, just make sure you pick a nice sunny day and bring a warm jumper for the boat home.

It was really a nice tour, our guide knew exactly where to look for a couple of dolphins and it was very impressive when we discovered them. The arrival and the greeting were very nice and you were in good hands at all times felt. We recommend!

Was a great trip with dolphins and a super friendly guide who tried very hard to take care of all of us. Drinks and small hospitality included. We'll be back anytime

Really worth every penny! The beaches can only be reached by boat and are therefore not overcrowded. I would do it again anytime :-)

Laura was a great tour guide! We had a wonderful day.
