AMAZING, WAY better than expected!! Dante was our skipper-guide, super friendly and accommodating, spoke good English and was amazing. He would offer to take pictures for us, helped us with steep/rocky paths, gave us facts and indepth history about each place or attraction and he was lovely to be around! Also offered water, jackets and alcohol at the end! DEFINITELY BRING TRAINERS/SNEAKERS a lot of walking, not complaining, but walking up to the top of a steepish island wearing sliders/crocs isnt the best idea haha

Nous avons passé un très bon moment, tout était très bien organisé. Les paysages sont exceptionnels, les arrêts sont laissent le temps d’aller se promener et de se baigner. A prévoir (même en octobre): - maillots de bain - serviettes - argent liquide car les boissons (café, thé, coca, etc..) sont payantes à bord

He is super kind! He knows how to make children laugh and adjusted our journey for my 7-year-old daughter. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour even though it was late October.

Very pleasant excursion of very very beautiful landscape Too bad the breakfast and lunch are not up to the excursion

Very informative. 2 hours packed with information and insight. Ask for Leah!!!
