What people are saying about Metropolitan City of Cagliari

Beautiful E-bike experience in Cagliari

It was truly a beautiful cultural and naturalistic tour. Our guide was very good and very professional. We had a lot of fun and we got to know Cagliari in all its aspects: starting from the historical center with a detailed historical description we reached the marina, the naturalistic park where we spotted flamingos and other birds and then strolled on the Poetto and reached the Lighthouse with a wonderful view over all Cagliari. Upon returning our guide pointed out to us a small flock of dolphins that fished in the harbor waters: BEAUTIFUL. We recommend this experience to everyone: if you are in Cagliari and have a half day free, you cannot miss it !!!!!!!!!

It was great, just beautiful. To do absolutely. Valentina gave us all the necessary information: about the city, the marina. She also gave us information on the saltworks, the Flemish. The break on the poetto beach allowed to exchange. I highly recommend this outing. No problem with electric bicycles: no effort if you want and even if it's hot it's very pleasant with the little wind. Bravo for this excursion

Fantastic experience

The bikes took a little while to get used to but then it was the start of a fantastic tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, interested in ensuring we had a wonderful time and the tour was 5 hours instead of 4. We were a little saddle sore but it was worth it. I would heartily recommend this tour. Thank you.

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.

Very nice ride across Cagliari. Leisurely. Beautiful views of nature (flamingos!!) Our guide Una was very friendly and knowledgeable about the route.
