A wonderful way to see the lake at Castel Gandolfo
Oct 2021
Email communication to confirm the reservation and to answer questions was prompt, courteous and friendly. Driver pickup at Anagnina was easy. (FYI the station's toilets were all closed.) Our guide, Alex, and his assistant were friendly and helpful, with good basic tips for kayaking and also reassurances for those who were beginners. The swimming opportunity came at the end, at the same beach where we started, while the staff were putting the kayaks away. We're happy we stumbled across this opportunity and are glad we did it, even on a day that was slightly chilly and windy. We hope their small business thrives. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed this experience a lot. Good organization, everything as it was explained in the beginning. A plus for having 2 slices of pizza on the river while swiming :)

The lake is really beautifull.

Would do it again!

Great day on the lake
Great day kayaking. Guides were awesome and really fun to talk to. The lake is beautiful and our guides explained the origin and history of the lake.

After 6 days of walking and touring Rome, getting out of the city and touring some natural history (via kayak!) was a welcome change.

Highly recommended

Perfect adventure from Rome
Aug 2021 • Solo
I had a fantastic time on this tour yesterday. Our guides Michael, Jacopo and Lorenzo were friendly, fun and very accommodating. It was east to get to the meet up place, quick to get on the lake and then we had a wonderful, relaxed morning on the water. The lake itself is gorgeous and the perfect way to do something different and active without having to travel far from Rome. I would highly recommend and would happily do this tour again on my next visit!
