Una experiencia magnífica !! El guía (Elvio) ha sido muy majo y antento. Los paisajes - inolvidables! Se come bien también :) Ojo! No hay límites de lo que comes en el paseo del barco un día estupendo, no dudaríamos en repetirlo!

Amazing value for money. The all you can eat mussels and wine boat trip was worth it in its own right. Lovely guide. Great stops. Wonderful experience

Great day - good agenda, lots to do and not at all rushed. Excellent value for money too. Guide very good and driver very safety conscious.

Elvio was outstanding. Apparently it is dry but it has its point of humor that makes the excursion more enjoyable.

Very good experience in everything. The guide Alexis was very helpful. I would repeat one more time.
