Awesome! We booked the tour in advance and everything was super easy with Get Your Guide. The landing stage was quickly found on site. We had a very personable guide who spoke French and English. The boat is clean and comfortable, everything top! In between we stopped once so that you could go snorkeling (equipment is available on board). Then we continued to the fishing village of Girolata. Beautiful place and very good food! The boat tour was really fantastic and the 6 hours just flew by. Highly Recommended!

I had a wonderful day touring cillages in the mountains overlooking Calvi. Our driver was kind and considerate and a very careful driver. It was also fun to share the experience with a small group of 6 people. I felt safe in the van with the windows open and fresh air blowing through. The information provided provided was also excellent, including, apart from hisptry, information about Corsican plants, bees and other agriculture.

We had a great day despite a slightly rainy departure from Calvi, very quickly on the boat we found the sun again, the landscapes are magnificent. the pilots very pleasant, attentive and attentive, they have a sense of humor which does not spoil anything and know how to take us to places of breathtaking beauty. We highly recommend this team

The guide Capucine was really nice and her colleague Damien too. A real pleasure to share this moment with them. The journey itself is rather calm, there is little off-roading. Several stops allow you to punctuate the journey and take photos. The stop in the natural swimming pool is magnificent! We highly recommend

The snorkeling tour was a great way to end our vacation. After a short, rapid boat ride, we stopped at a reef and had over an hour to observe the most diverse fish and sea creatures. We would definitely do it again and recommend it!
