The experience was amazing! Perfect organisation, kindness, availability. We arrived late due to a scooter problem, they were waiting for us. Everything was explained in details. Landscape is awfully wild and peaceful. The two guys helps people in the difficult point of the ride. There are stops to rest and in the end you can change wet cloths in a locker rooms. A transfer brings you back. In the way back we had (again) a problem with the scooter and we will never stop thanking the guy of the organisation. They were so kind to help us. Unfortunately we don’t remember names. Thank you so much!

It was awesome. Both guys we're super nice and funny. We had a great time with them and also learned something about the environment. Would definitely recommend this tour.

The kayaking experience was set up very well and great for all levels of experience. Zoki was an excellent guide.
