What people are saying about Porticcio

Unfortunately, the meeting point was somewhere else and difficult to find. The tour was an amazing experience! Although we don't speak French, the guide was very nice and the tour was well planned. The snacks were tasty and there was wine, coke etc

Great boat trip, the guide is in French not English but the views are amazing! If you are up and down the hill to the viewpoint then there is plenty of time for a swim. Take food and drink, limited amounts available on the boat.

Outing just topissime, everything was great from start to finish! A few swimming stops in crystal clear waters. Small aperitif on board, really very friendly guide. I validate +++ Thanks again to JPS adventure
