Honestly such a great deal considering the price. We had an absolutely fantastic day. A beautiful guided kayaking tour with the guides sharing the history of the lake as we went. Then we stopped for a swim and some pizza! We also had the option to stay longer at the lake for the day and they dropped us back to the train station later on that day with absolutely no hassle. Lovely people and a lovely day! Highly recommend

Relatively short drive to the lake and the tour was as expected. Temperature of the lake was a welcome relief from the heat around Rome.

Francesco was amazing - told us so much about the lake and didn’t even realise that it’s actually an old volcano! They picked us up from the train station and took us back, we had the best slice of pizza I’ve ever had, and saw turtles while having a swim in the lake. Honestly the best trip out of Rome loved it!

Absolutely incredible! I had never done Kayaking before and our guides Alexander and Alessandra were so good. Super clear when guiding me and after 10 mins max I was fully confident. The lake is beautiful and I had the best day, I didn't want it to end. Would highly recommend.

Luca was very interesting to listen to as he described the history and geology of the lake and area. Definitely keen to return and hire a kayak for a day and explore some more.

Un très beau moment, surtout avec la météo a Rome. Ensuite, nous avons visité le village de Gandolfo et pris le train pour revenir. Nous le recommandons. Les restaurants sont charmants et la nourriture variée. Le proprio, Alex, est super charmant. Il nous a offert de la pizz, mais debout. Des tables a pique-nique seraient un plus.
