A long but very fulfilling day
Our day started with a 7.00 pick up from Cagliari. We were apprehensive about such a long trip to the north west of Sardinia. But our driver/guide Ricardo was excellent. He gave a great running commentary along the way and the countryside is fascinating. Alghero is a pretty little walled city but the highlight of the trip was the visit to Neptune’s Cave and the surrounding area by boat. After the boat trip and lunch there were visits to prehistoric sites. A Nuraghe and a prehistoric burial ground. We didn’t get back until 20.00 hrs but a very fulfilling day with excellent guiding. Not for those who tire easily but a great way to see a completely different side of Sardinia if you are based in Cagliari.

Lovely Italy
Loved Italy and this great tour taken on our second day into a Mediterranean cruise was enjoyable. We took a ride into the country side, meandered the streets of italy... great then visited a rock museum and had an informative talk.

Not to be missed
Went by car and then down the 600+ steps. The walk down the cliffs is probably the best part of the visit. The caves are awesome, but the cliffs more so. Going back up it’s more than 600 steps, so would not advice to the elderly or anyone with young children. One can take a boat trip from Alghero to avoid the steps.

Majestic Cave
We had a comfortable ride Along with our friendly guide Mateo destination of tour was the Caves of Neptune. The place is so magical beautiful to see and experience. One thing is to offer more bottle water during long tour hours incase customer ran out, other than that We strongly recommend Bitan Tours. Also best to pay a bit more when you book so you can be picked up at your hotel and best to stay in Chia where most of the beautiful beaches aré located (instead of Calgari).

We were a group of 11 people and were absolutely delighted with Bitan Daily Tour. Most of all, a massive thank you to our amazing tour guides Junior and Matteo! From start to finish we were treated like royalty, were taught about a plethora of wonders about the local area along with Sardinia's history, had fantastic wine and cheese and endless laughs from beginning to end! I highly recommend Bitan Daily Tours to anyone seeking to be shown Cagliari and its surroundings anytime by this wonderful team! Once again MILLE GRAZIE A TUTTI :)

Lovely unspoiled country
Sardinia is still an undiscovered, beautiful country. There is a history going back thousands of years and plenty of ruins of the Nuragic people to prove it. The modern people have absorbed characteristics of all the many invaders who have come and left their mark. Their language is still spoken, but everybody seems to be able to speak proper Italian and in many cases English as well. We did not have to ask where to eat - every place has excellent, reasonably priced food. We got around Cagliari without a car, although we did hire guides to take us out into the country.

One of the hilights on Sardinia
A truly breathtaking experience, we drove to the top of the cliff where you can park and climb down to the cave entrance at sea level. It is an amazing climb along the cliffside, down 600 plus steps. It was very safe and manageable. You are met at the entrance to the cave where you p[ay 12 euros each for a guide tour through the grotto. It is amazing. the hike back up will get your heart rate up; however, there is not need to hurry and the views are spectacular. A hilihght of our trip to Sardinia.

Amazing private tour to Carlo Forte
We took a private tour from chia to Carlo forte. The trip in the car was very comfortable with WiFi and our guide was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. He answered all our questions and has very good English. This tour was the best tour we took in our 2 weeks trip to chia. We wished if we had used Bitan tours for other excursions but definitely we will be back and will use this amazing service

Wonderful boat tour of Southern Sardinian beaches
A huge thank you to Junior, our very knowledgeable and fun guide, for our half-day boat tour from Malfatano to Capo Spartivento and all the inaccessible and beautiful spots in-between. Keeping 3-year and 5-year old boys entertained on a small boat for 4 hours in between snorkelling in the crystal clear waters is no mean feat. It was a great excursion away from our rather busy hotel and I would highly recommend Junior and this tour.

5 Hour Hidden Beach Excursion
Because of our love for the ocean, my husband and I choose the beaches of Southern Sardinia as our main attraction to explore part of the island. Lorenzo- our guide was the true superstar of the excursion. His welcoming demeanor and gracious hospitality made it easy for us to enjoy the moment and appreciate the beauty of Sardinia. Our excursion took place in May. Although, it was 24 degrees Celsius it was quite windy. The beach that we decided to spend the most time at was Tuerredda. It was such a serene experience sunbathing and swimming with my husband. Thanks to Lorenzo's recommendation, we had a delicious native pasta dish at the restaurant located on the beach. When it was time to go to the next destination we didn't want to leave. Lorenzo's knowledge and his willingness to share his culture provided an authentic experience with a host nation local. I definitely recommend this tour.
