My friend and I are very happy with this cruise! It is really worth the detour. She did us a world of good. The landscape is magnificent as well as the history that accompanies it. We had the stars in our eyes, it's quite hard to recover from this kind of experience as the spectacle of nature seizes us. What made it even more beautiful was the presence of our two guides, unfortunately I forgot to ask their names but they were very nice. THANK YOU ! ❤️

The booking online and the check-in on site worked great. The skipper drove a great boat and the guide told everything important about the rocks/cliffs and beaches.

Moin dear ones, you can do it. We had two very nice tour drivers. 1 hour is enough. The kayak cruisers see more and looked very strained. LG

We were treated very well, the captain very skillful. We are very satisfied with the activity.

It was great, our guide was nice and he drove the boat perfectly!
