The excursion has been great, all the staff are lovely and very helpful. Spectacular setting and very good food. The only negative aspect is that Getyourguide is an intermediary, despite the fact that they sent us 3 emails with the information, they did not inform us that the change of location of the meeting point meant that we missed the bus, since it was a stop at more than 15 min walk. Everything was solved very well thanks to the busturistic staff not from Getyourguide

I recommend this activity 100%. The landscape is spectacular, the beautiful boat trip. Mr. Manolo who guided the boat, was explaining things to us about the alfubera, a very nice man. The food in the restaurant, the best paella I have ever eaten. The treatment of the restaurant staff has also been 10.

At the bus stop, a girl speaking in Italian explained everything to us. The transfer was great and we listened to the explanations in Italian. On the boat he spoke only in SPANISH and it was not very clear; I had to enlist the help of a traveler who also speaks French. The restaurant welcomed us kindly and served in a medium to long time. Unfortunately I define the quality of the PAELLA poor: I have the photos and I would like to send them. The rice was sticking to the pan and semi-scorched. Poor taste indeed.
