What people are saying about Province of Nuoro, Sardinia

The experience was beautiful! We found the beach easily thanks to the directions provided We started from the beach and stopped to admire the dolphins Then we snorkeled on the island and finally had an aperitif on a small beach The guides were very kind and prepared Experience absolutely recommended and to redo! Good value for money considering the area, the experience and the fact that we had two guides at our disposal! To try :)

It was super nice! Even though we were a mixed group, the guild made sure she spoke in both German and English, such that everybody was able to enjoy the experience and understand the explanations about various objects from the road. We even went to the Sorgenti su Gologone afterwards, which wasn't part of the trip, but the guid went out of her way to take us there to enjoy some nice spring water

Relaxing and rewarding evening. As a kayak novice I enjoyed myself. Daniele was a super escort with his infinite patience he managed to take us to the most unreachable places for me. I recommend to everyone ... I only recommend punctuality.

Friendly and courteous staff. We were lucky and saw dolphins several times. The small snack with drink was also great. All in all I can only recommend this tour!

The experience was more than worth it. The crew has been very kind, they spoke about every cave, mountain formation, beaches. I recommend it!
