We liked it very much. Our guide Serge brought us well and safely to the Corsican mountain villages and back to the hotel. It was very impressive, especially the smells of the herbs and plants in nature. The visit to the old oil mill was very idyllic. Lunch with a great view over Calvi in Lumio. We were unlucky with the group, apart from us there were only French people, so there was little to no communication, only with the guide.

A friendly personal tour

We visited some interesting and picturesque villages in a small friendly group. Our guide told us many useful facts about the area and Corsican history We had a long leisurely lunch in Lumio giving us an opportunity to discuss life with our French and English counterparts Our French friends learnt that cats like cheese ! A thoroughly enjoyable and informative trip

Definitely worth seeing!

The tour was very informative, the route beautiful and Serge our guide not only was an excellent driver but also lovely and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the tour of the Balagne villages with lots of stops to explore including a visit to a traditional oil mill and tasting and would recommend it to anyone interested in Corsica.

A very pleasant day

Our guide Serge was very professional and friendly. He demonstrated a knowledge of the region and its nature and had the delicacy to make us taste fruits from the trees of the region. We visited several perched villages and ate in a restaurant with a superb view! We really enjoyed this beautiful day! Thank you Serge!!!

Superb experience with the guide Julien always listening to our slightest question. He made us spend a very pleasant time and offered us the history of Corsica in 1 day during the walk in the villages. Thank you again Julien for your professionalism and your kindness.
