    The tour itself was great. Mikk, our guide for the day, was amazing and very knowledgeable about Prangli Island, so much so that we thought he was a resident. The island itself is amazing and great to have a nice hike (there are 3 hours of free time during the trip). The only thing that could be improved is to let guests know what is being served for lunch as we were served fish which not everyone in the group eats. Apart from that, the tour is very highly recommended.

The city tour with Alexandra was just great. She gave us so much information and tips as we have never had before in any tour and adapted well to our pace with a toddler. I can only recommend it. If you can get it then you are in real luck. Thanks again.

Tonio was able and affable, he helped us to discover corners and parts outside the classic tourist tours, despite the bad weather. Excellent interaction to learn about local uses and customs, cost and quality of life, comparisons with our. reality.
