What people are saying about South Sardinia

A great experience, really memorable, and fun for us all.

Firstly, huge thanks to our guide, driver and boatman, Junior. He had an excellent knowledge and shared it with us in an understable way that added interest without overburdening us with facts. The trip itself was absolutely brilliant. Starting with the boat trip, the boat was good and the stood to allow us to swim in crystal clear waters with snorkelling kit Junior lent us meant we could see the many fishes in a way we've never experienced before. The lunch was great and worth the extra. The trip up into the mountains gave us views we would not have experienced alone nor with a tourist coach. It gave us an appreciation why Junior loves Sardinia so much. It's a great place. Thanks so much to Junior and the team that put this together. Our group was two fresh out of uni and us, the rather older parents, and all of us thought it was great. Thanks!

Nice kayak trip. The route was about 12 km and easy to do, some lovely spots for. Looking for relaxation.
