O passeio foi muito bonito e muito agradável, adorei a viagem. E o almoço/lanche de seguida foi excepcional. O Francisco foi um ótimo anfitrião, e ainda nos deu um roteiro da cidade e dicas de locais para ver e visitar. Uma experiência fenomenal!

Francesco organized a great trip. The river is very calm and nice. Not so much other boats / tourists (onlh a few stand up padlers) and no big boats. So it was very chilled and the water was much warmer than the sea - so you can swim in it easily. After 3h kajak Francesco preparred a nice lunch with regional specialities and Sangria and recommended us some places to visit. A very warm welcome and sympathic guide. Thank you. I can recommend this trip to others.

The kayaking was relaxing however a little shorter than I expected. Great distance for a quick and easy trip or for someone who doesn't kayak often. Francisco was a great host picking me up from my hotel and providing the most delicious wine, sausages and cheeses after the trip.
