A lot to see and experience! The make the boat full but we were lucky to go to the very front. We liked the visit on the island with some free time. Would have been good to know that you get food and better seating for 15€ each person. The staff were super warm and fun. We had a great time and saw a lot in general. Everything went smooth. Thanks you for that!

We were 4 adults and 2 children (5 and just 1) we had good space and plenty of shade. The boat trip was fun, everywhere enough time to swim and enjoy. Then born of a nice lunch!
