Everything was perfect, from the booking to renting the boat. Very friendly staff, they explain very clearly how to ride the boat and they let you to a "test drive" to make you "feel" the boat. Make sure you have a charged smartphone with you, they install a navigation app on it so you now where to go and where to avoid rocks in the water and tell you where are the best spots to throw the anker. We only wished the 4 hours could last longer! 100% recommended!

Well organized. Great experience. Great value for money! Top tour guide Mrs. Kuuli. It was an experience. We will be back! Kind regards from M.Arnegger and I. Kochsmeier
