What people are saying about Province of Sassari

It was a unique and wonderful experience! Mr. Antonio showed us places to take your breath away, terrestrial paradises with intense colors, impossible to forget! We left on time and our first stop was the "doctor's beach" where we took our first swim and we reached the shore. We were provided with masks to better admire the bottom and the many fish around us. Then we headed to the flat island for a second swim, got back on board, we had an aperitif (kindly offered) with soft drinks and savory and sweet snacks. As a third stop we sailed under the walls of Tavolara, greeted the statue of the Madonna protector of fishermen and then chose the place to take a last dip and eat the ice cream purchased from one boat to another. Thanks especially to Mr. Antonio for his kindness, shrewdness and sympathy, a really sunny and sociable person.

Irene was a lovely instructor! It was a warm experience getting to learn about Sardinian cooking in such an authentic way. I booked this as a birthday surprise for my husband, and he absolutely loved it. Irene even had a small present for him for his birthday. She also gave us some other helpful food recommendations for the rest of our visit in Sardinia. Cannot recommend this experience more!

The tour of the islands was amazing the gudie Antonio was on top! I really recommend this activity the best since we arrived here.

Irene was a great host and the cooking class was fun, informative and tasty. All that in a beautiful setting!

We spent half a day with Antonio, a very attentive and professional skipper! A great time!
