This is our second time going out with Mauro and Susan. We enjoyed it so much the first time that we wanted our kids who are visiting to be able to experience it too. The boat is not big so it's nice to meet and get to know people. I can't say enough about Susan & Mauro. Who knows, maybe we'll run into you in Scotland if not in San Vito again. Thanks for a memorable trip.

We very much enjoyed our boat trip with Susan and Maur. The scenery was beautiful, the opportunities for swimming were lovely and we had some local snacks and wine to top it off.
There was lots of information about what we were seeing and local history. Susan made sure everybody was enjoying themselves, and this individual attention really made a difference.
Couldn't recommend this highly enough

We met up with some friends who had booked this tour in advance and we were not disappointed. A smaller boat and as there were 7 of us, there were only 2 other people on board so it felt like a private excursion. We left early enough to arrive at the two beaches before all of the other boats. Great snacks and drinks on board. Susan and Mauro were a pleasure as our captains. Would definitely recommend!

We are a family of four (our children are 10 and 8 years old) and this tour was the highlight of our vacation in San Vito. Apparently, the tour is particularly popular with families as we shared the boat with two Italian families with young children. The guides, Susan and Mauro, are both fluent in English and Italian, and went out of their way to make everybody on board feel comfortable and at home. They did an outstanding job explaining the history of the many sights we saw along the coast. Our kids loved the snorkeling stops in particular (all equipment provided); snacks and light lunch served with local wine were a real treat. Highly recommended to anybody spending time in San Vito.

I arranged 2 half-day private boat trips instead of 1 long day trip since my kids get antsy after a few hours. My emails with Susan and Mauro ahead of time were lovely exchanges so I was sure that our time together would also be lovely. As it turned out it was more than that - it was also magnificent, informative, kind, friendly, warm and just plain fun. It was like hanging out and catching up with old friends that you haven't seen for a while. We chatted constantly and learned so much about San Vito, Zingaro and Riserva Monte Cofano. The boat is perfect for sailing in the waters that we visited and we got to stop and swim at many great spots, including a very cool grotto. Also, the food that was offered was tasty and fresh. We are so happy that we spent these days with Susan and Mauro -- they were the highlight of our trip to San Vito.
