What people are saying about Bonifacio

The boat trip is a bit long but given the splendor of Bonifacio, it's worth the cost. The staff is very pleasant, especially since that day there was sea and many passengers were sick

Beautiful sea trip along the coast with very clear explanations from the very friendly guide who is happy and very attentive to travelers.

Staff at the top, very professional and very caring. Just a little music would make this outing a real cruise.

It is really worth the trip of more than 3 hours to go by boat. Great photos to take

perfect, a little long but nothing we can do about it.
