    Did both the sea Kayaking and snorkeling. Both are recommended. Only issue is the address for the business is not the same as the tour location. It is a fair walk from the Portofino village but reachable on foot as well as y taxi and bus.

    Guide to busy impressing young girls. Should have guided the tour at the pace if the slowest people instead we missed much of the talk as the guide rushed ahead like it was an Olympic race . 2nd guide left us behind when he was supposed to be at the back making sure all was ok. Left inexperienced people behind.

    Nous avons passés un excellent moment ! C'est une façon différente de voir Portofino et d'en apprécier le paysage. Angelo nous as tout bien expliqué avant le départ et a pris le temps de nous raconter l'histoire des différents lieux emblématiques qu'on nous avons pu observer. En soirée, en plein été, on ne souffre pas de la chaleur sans pour autant avoir froid ! Je recommande à 100%.

    Really enjoyable! Learned more about portofino and surrounding area! Good wine and focaccia after which was a good touch! Did the sunset tour with wine tasting

    Sarah was our guide and she was great! Very informative and kind to our group. She was very knowledgeable about the marine wild life and area in general. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get the total Portofino experience!

    Esperienza da rifare, tour di un’ora e mezzo con guida, molto interessante e bello. Il tour prevede il passaggio da piccole spiagge incantevoli che non possiamo vedere dalla strada. Siamo capitato in un gruppo di persone straniere e nonostante ciò si è aggiunta una guida per spiegarci tutto in italiano, molto professionale. Consiglio a tutti questi esperienza.

    La baia di Niasca offre l'incredibile occasione di fare un giro in kayak e un'immersione nei fondali seguiti da due guide esperte, giovani e dall'estrema gentilezza. Giulio ed Edoardo ci hanno seguito e raccontato le perle e le unicità presenti in questa eccellenza della Liguria.

    We did 2h tour kayaking at 28euro each, and it was really fun. Good service and good aperitivo and plenty of food at the end included in the price. Staff very polite and wonderful experience and view in Portofino Recommended!

    The kayak experience was entertaining. The 2 guides were knowledgeable of the area and very helpful for any of the kayakers if they got tired. I would recommend this.
