Very successful off-road tour! The best way to get to know Corsica naturally. I think it's nice that the drivers warn the guests not to get too close to the wild animals, also so as not to disturb them. Especially for someone from Switzerland with so many farms and cattle breeding it is almost inconceivable that cows live freely without an owner. Very impressive. It's a pity that you can book the tour in English, but the excursion is in French. It was amusing that the driver made fun of me as a Swiss person from time to time, but didn't think about the fact that I understand French very well but can't speak it well. I took it with humor ;)

Spectacular beach

The beautiful beach. The road in 4x4 giving many boats. It takes a long time to get to the beach but it is worth it. The guide is very nice but she doesn't speak much English. We shared the excursion with 2 French and almost all the time they spoke in French. He did not give us many explanations of the places, the plants etc in English ..... a shame ... because you could see that he enjoyed and knew ...
