What people are saying about Metropolitan City of Cagliari

Excellent kayak tour, with very friendly guides. After a short introduction, you just go into the water with your boat and you’ll have fun. Especially during the short stops, where you can jump into the sea and climb back on your kayak. Even a small snack was provided. Doesn’t matter if it’s your first time in a kayak or not, they took care of every levels of skill and speed. So everyone can enjoy this trip with a beautiful view of the Sella del Diavolo. Thanks again for the great experience!

Ivo, our guide, was brilliant. A very pleasant two-hour bike tour, with a coffee stop. The only drawback: the meeting point indicated by get your guide did not correspond to the real address, but was 50m further on, at another street number. It is absolutely necessary to make this change. Maria and Simone

The travel was very well organised, everything was on time, the guide Valerya wa really nice and competent- tells us a lot of very interesting facts about Sardinian history and attractions. Really recommend this bike tour.

It's a pleasant way to see as much of a foreign city as possible. Everything was explained. There was always enough time for photos and questions.

Fun and interesting, relaxing ride with new and comfortable bicycles, in the middle of the nature of the beautiful park of the salt pans and flamingos
