It was a nice relaxing but active program on a hot summer day. Our guide, Andrea was quiet a bit, but very kind. He drove us to the lakeside (approx. 20-30 min. from the Anangina metro station), explained shortly how to use the kayak and we started the tour. We asked for 2 double kayaks to manage with the children but it was easy and safe with jackets. We stopped by the shore to climb up the rocks a bit and swim in a nice calm place. Andrea explained us the origin of the lake and the castle of the Vatican. The water was beautifully clear and warm, very refreshing. They offered us a slice of pizza which was very pleasant. We came back the same way, we spent 2,5-3 hours on the water. For us it was all together a 6-hour program from the hotel and back. It was a really nice afternoon outside the city

The service was interesting because they really offer what they sell. Definitely being in Rome and doing this activity is a good memory. The place is beautiful and they have their own history. Italian nature.

The trip was amazing, our guide had a lot of knowledge, he told us numerous interesting stories. We could see that his job is also his hobby. We had some time to swim in the lake. The views were breathtaking!

Michael and Andrea, and all the guys on the team, are super helpful. Absolutely recommended experience!

Fantastisk med en padletur etter noen dager i Roma!
