What people are saying about Province of Cádiz, Spain

We have had a bad experience from minute zero, they made a mistake at the meeting point, which was in Tarifa, and we arrived half an hour late for everything, the guides left and left us alone in Gibraltar, no guide, no recommendations, absolutely nothing. the dolphin sighting is not worth much because you hardly see anything, apart from the fact that everything is in English, in total we spent 4 hours on the excursion, you don't have time for anything, we were left wanting to visit the nature reserve, too I have to say that the customer service has been the best, they respond immediately and they have reimbursed us half of what we paid. Even so, we are very disappointed since it was a gift that we and my daughter and I gave to my husband and it was a real disaster.

A well organized excursion, great explanation in two languages, various whales sighted. Not suitable for children under the age of 12 (swell, nausea, urge to move). The guides had to look after children and wipe away the "residual nausea".

Staff attentive and creating a good atmosphere. We were lucky and it was a fantastic day for sailing. We saw whales and pilot whales. An unforgettable experience!

We were at the pirate on Sunday the 21st and it was exceptional. We had a voyage full of sightings. Next time we will go three hours because it is very short

A great team. We had problems arriving. The team waited for us until the last minute. Thanks a lot for this.
