Combined sea kayaking in morning + 2.5hr unguided walk in afternoon. Superb. Very efficient collection and delivery. Good experienced local firm (not large national company).

The guide, Lucas, was amazing. He made cappuccinos on the beach, found us fresh oysters, and steamed fresh mussels. Oh yeah - the kayaking was great too!

Did guided day trip. Well-organised, great guide, perfect balance of exercise, relaxation, wildlife, history, site-seeing and fun. If any improvement needed some of historical stuff could be mixed up a bit, must be tough for guides to repeat every day.

Very informative guide (even provided coffee and biscuits). We had the chance to cover a lot of the park in a short space of time - beautiful trip.
