The experience was beautiful! We found the beach easily thanks to the directions provided We started from the beach and stopped to admire the dolphins Then we snorkeled on the island and finally had an aperitif on a small beach The guides were very kind and prepared Experience absolutely recommended and to redo! Good value for money considering the area, the experience and the fact that we had two guides at our disposal! To try :)

We’ve never been to wine tasting, but are definitly going again after this experience! Anna Maria was really good at explaining (in english) all about the wines, and also had a history introduction about Sardinia! The wines and the scenery are absolutely worth a visit.

Irene and Gabriele are very welcoming hosts. We learnt how to make a variety of different pasta and then they cooked up a delicious meal for us with produce from their garden. Grazie mille.

Friendly and courteous staff. We were lucky and saw dolphins several times. The small snack with drink was also great. All in all I can only recommend this tour!

Valeria was amazing! Definitely get a tour after the wine tasting, it's only 8 EUR pp
