It's quite amazing how the boat manages to get into the caves, and the views of the coast are fantastic. If the Riviera tour manager gives you the impression that she's organising the trip specially for guests, (as ours did, with a three euro premium) it's not the case. It's a public service, the boat seats over 100, and you... More

Very nice 2 hr tour of the coastline, in and out of several caves. Well worth the time and money. I am prone to seasickness, no need to worry, they take their time. No one spoke English but they had English documents they showed us to explain where we were

Definitely recommended. Best way to discover the beaches and suggest to do it at the beginning of the holiday as they give you tips for places to see and beaches to go to. May they should do their beach stop a bit longer and in a less busy beach. Worth the money though

Just 15 euros p.p. for a 3 and a half hour trip by boat ! They even stop at some point and let you swim for about 45 minutes. The guided tour is not translated into english tho. Amazing caves and landscapes! It was worth the one hour driving there and the early wake up alarm!! :D

We took a great afternoon boat tour on the Adriatic visiting amazing grottos. Although the tour was in Italian, we did just fine! The views were fabulous, the water so clear and it was a surprising addition to our vacation in the Gargano Peninsula.

Took a relly nice tour here along the coast and in and out of numerous grottos. Sit on the starboard side of the boat, better view.

we did the grotto tour and this was a unexpected surprise. The boat was smooth and fast, but entering in the grottos was so cool. I would never had expected these large boats to fit into these grottos.
