    Nice tour, but does not offer what it promises!

    Nice tour along the coast of Arabida. However, this tour did not take 5 hours, as promised, but only 3 1/2 hours. We could neither snorkel nor swim and there was neither wine nor water. The meeting point specified by Get Your Guide was the wrong one, so that we could not start the tour at first and could only make it up after consulting the local provider two days later. The guide was very nice and told us a lot about Arabida. All in all, we were still very disappointed, especially as our children were looking forward to snorkeling and swimming.

    It was a wonderful ride. I recommend 100%. I was a little hesitant to score, because it's winter and it's cold, but I took a chance. Worth it! Beautiful beaches, small caves and we saw dolphins…;)
