The boat tour was spectacular! Andrea was an excellent captain and guide. We were met timely at the marina, boat was comfortable and operating well. The caves and arches were amazing and had I rented and piloted a boat on my own we would not have found them nor navigated them as Andre did. I can highly recommend.

Everything was perfect! We enjoyed the trip very much. A wonderful experience and spectacle. Francesco was a great guide - thank you so much Francesco! We highly recommend everyone to use this great service! Martin, Tatiana, Bertík 🙋🏼‍♂️

Cinzia and her team do their work with a lot of love. You can see it and taste it. The wine is delicious and the hostess is very friendly, warm and helpful. A more wonderful place between wine and olives!

New boat with good equipment; friendly and above all flexible staff (we were there in the off-season). Highly recommended!

Brand new boat which was easy to skipper ourselves. Great staff. All was perfect.
