An unforgettable boat trip in breathtaking coves. We were like explorers in the discovery of unknown lands or like privateers looking for a hideout to hide his nest egg Getyourguide was very nice to change our departure schedule even though we were within 24 hours so it was impossible to changes, thank you getyourguide !! The captain of our boat is very nice, funny and gives just enough explanations. I highly recommend this trip, it's well worth 30 € !!! Good continuation and see you soon ! Avignon family

Breathtaking crossing by its beauty. However, no information when booking on the style of boat (large boat or zodiac) making the crossing. We certainly loved it but fortunately we are not cardiac, if for example my Mum had come with us you might have had big trouble ... to be absolutely informed when booking.

Very warm welcome, a lot of humor, and great information on the places visited and the origin of this magnificent land of Corsica. We had a great day. Thank you so much !

Very good excursion with a great team and beautiful landscapes

Very nice visit of the creeks with a friendly guide.
