Dream day with Sofia our skipper, we took part in the maneuvers when it was our first time on a sailboat and I will never forget the welcome of my autistic son who was warm to make the cruise unforgettable, the lunch at board, the cookies after the break on the island of Natturo where we were able to swim. We were with a couple of young Germans who were also very nice. Thank you very much The Green Trails! And more specifically Sofia of course ;-) Kévin & Agnès

Calle was a great guide. We learned a lot about Viking culture, had some great discussions in the van, and enjoyed the company of the other travellers. Highly recommend this tour.

Great alternative to larger sightseeing boats. It felt my tour guide could cater the tour to who was on the boat rather than the standard script.

Fast paced in content and sightseeing. Excellent guide made all the difference. I really learned a lot about Vikings!

Calle was awesome!! Very informative, engaging, funny and knowledgable.
