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!

We really enjoyed the tour. We were taking nice keep ride in a National park in the mountains and observed the surroundings, and our guide told us a lot of new and interesting information about local history and surroundings and Sardinia. We also seen stunning views from one of the highest mountains in the area and enjoyed Picknick with local homemade food. Definitely to recommend.

One of the most amazing and unique excursions we have ever done. Our guide Maurizio was welcoming, passionate, and knowledgeable. Such an adventure that I wouldn’t hesitate to do again.
