What people are saying about Corsica

A very interesting trip. Two stops on the way: 10 minutes at the Napoleon statue and 20 minutes at the parking lot overlooking the iles sanguinares. Very nice driver. We had originally booked a different date, but due to the fact that the organizers of another tour from get your guide rescheduled it, we couldn't use our tickets on the day of the tour. Therefore, I asked to make the trip on a different day and time and there were no problems with it. Thank you very much.

Boat trip a little long otherwise great view from the boat to take pictures of bonifacio and little train included in the ticket for access to the top of the village

Great experience. The bikes have nothing to do with the photo, the engines were essential. Accessible to everyone. I strongly advise.

Good experience. Trip with beautiful views on the bay of Ajaccio. Explanation and info was very good.

Experience to do !! A must !! Perfect visit that shows you all the points of Ajaccio
