i ragazzi dell host molto simpatici,però le aspettative erano molto più alte. È stato un tour troppo superficiale e vago,con un bagno velocissimo . Troppo poco tempo!

Le tour en bateau était très sympa : visite des grottes, baignades et tour de l'ile. Cependant attention : les explications ne sont que en italiens (pas en anglais) donc nous n'avons pas compris grand chose. Nous avons pourtant demandé si la traduction était possible, mais il nous a juste dit que non. Le conducteur du bateau n'était pas très friendly, ne vous attendez pas à faire ami-ami avec lui.

Avventura naturalistica, attraversando la suggestiva Isola d'Ortigia e il secondo più grande porto naturale del Mediterraneo. Consigliato! *Munirsi di costume e telo

La gita è stata molto carina e interessante, soprattutto le grotte e i racconti della guida. Il bagno finale nel porto grande rende questa esperienza imperdibile!

It has been a great experience, I enjoyed seeing the island of Ortigia from the "outside" and I really appreciated the explanations offred by the person who drove the boat and guided the tour. Highly recommended!

Abbiamo fatto un bagno magnifico in un’acqua verde smeraldo! Il capitano è stato molto gentile e disponibile , con una narrazione molto competente e personalizzata.
