UNBEATABLE!! The treatment of 10, we were my partner and I with two children of 11 and 15 years. Very attentive at all times. Material, cleaning, snacks… we can't say anything bad… well, except for the onion in the potato omelette. That being said, it should be a must-do! It is not the largest ship that offers this service, but this allows them to offer better attention and care. We wish them the best, and if we return to the island, the first thing we will do is book another outing with them.

Everything was perfect! The guide was o informed and nice. The other people of the tour were from many different countries and therefore even if I was alone I had no problem at all. I highly recommend this to anyone, the team is great, the tour is useful and what it offers it’s really cheap! Do not miss the opportunity!

Exceptional trip, fantastic hosts, very knowledgeable and personable. Absolutely no hidden extras, snorkelling equipment provided and a lovely tapas lunch with soft drinks all included. Great value money and a trip that has created many wonderful family memories.

Virginia was a great guide. My 11 year old daughter and myself felt in very capable hands and was one of the highlights of our stay!

Fantastisk tur uden for mange mennesker ombord. Meget afslappende og yderst god service! Bedste tur på øen ☀️
