What people are saying about Metropolitan City of Cagliari

The pick up location was around the corner from what is stated on this website, but give the local operator and call to confirm. Our guide was great, he even provided fresh figs. Took us to four swimming spots around the island. Water is stunning and sun was beaming - saw plenty of wildlife. Exactly what we wanted - bring a snorkel.

wonderful experience ❤️ we celebrated a hen party and we had a great time.Thanks to our skipper who despite the windy day managed to take us to beautiful places. We will definitely be back for other excursions too ❤️

It was an amazing experience. I not only learned a lot but also have an amazing afternoon with the organizer that was very welcoming and took the time to explain everything carefully.
