A great tour! Francesco is a wonderful tour guide who loves his profession. He took us to some beautiful locations and caves and explained not only the sea life, but the geology of the region as well. A must do water sport when you are in the area.

Very good experience!! We learned many important and interesting things about the coast and the ecosystem, and about how we can help protect it. We saw unique places like the only cave with a nursery of mini bats. Francesco was very kind and friendly, and he communicated his passion for the coast. Kayak on the sea is the best manner to discover many beautiful places! We recommend a lot this experience 👌👌👌

La suggestività del luogo, il punto di vista insolito e la capacità di raccontare e coinvolgere dei ragazzi, rende questa senza dubbio la migliore esperienza vissuta in salento!

Purtroppo per il maltempo l'esperienza è stata rinviata e abbiamo poi fatto l'escursione a Porto Cesareo, ma a prescindere dalla meta l'escursione è appassionante (e, da neofita, parecchio faticosa!). Francesco è molto preparato e simpatico. Esperienza consigliata!
