“Day Trip to Cagliari from Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Two of us from Las Vegas, NV, USA booked a private tour with Guglielmo to collect us at CAG for a day tour of the southern area of Sardinia in December 2013. Guglielmo has excellent English and was very informative about all aspects of Sardinia.

We first drove north to Su Nuraxi di Barumini, a UNESCO WHS. The ruins date back to 1800 or 1500 BC depending on who you talk to. The tour was awesome! We then drove to the top of the nearby plateau to seek out the wild miniature horses that live there; unfortunately all we saw were goats and cows. It was a nice walk. Drove back to Cagliari and looked at the long sandy
beach and a quick visit to nearby Marina Piccola. Then we drove by the lagoon where the Flamingoes stay year round. At the peak there are 4,000 breeding pairs. The young are white as they have yet to eat enough shrimp brine to change the colors of their feathers. We then had a traditional Sardegna lunch in the narrow streets of downtown Cagliari. We then drove to the top of the castle area and looked at towers and narrow streets. Visited the Basilica of Our Lady of Bonaria that dated back to the time of Spaniard rule. It held hundreds of various Saints ashes and was very ornate inside. We then visited Monte Urpine at sunset with fantastic views. Finally a stop at the Church of Sant Eulaia. Finally an espresso at the oldest bar in Cagliari. Then a short ride to the airport to fly back to FCO. It was a long and wonderful day with Guglielmo as our guide.

Ciao Tim,
I am really glad you appreciated my tour and my skills.
I spent a good time too.
I realized the two of you were very interested in our ancient culture and enchanted by the charms of the places we went together in south Sardinia.

Best regards

Guglielmo

“Cagliari to Alghero”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

With Guillermo as out guide, we made the transition from Caglieri to Alghero by car and were treated to wonderful explanations of the local economy and history of Sardinia along the way. He was very well informed and his language skills were excellent. His knowledge of the sites we visited was excellent and made the trip a delight. Thanks !

Good tourist guide and beautiful places. Not only great beaches. on the route there are several archeo attractions: spanish warning towers, along the coast from Torre delle Stelle to Villasimius. The Nuraghe Diana and The old Fortress in Villasimius are very interesting.

The beach tour to Villasimius marine protected area is built to put together culture, sea and nature. Along the way, we stop to admire the spanish warning tours, the Nuraghe Diana the unique example of complex XV century B.C. sardinia fortress.
And then or most of all, amazing "Caribbean" coves. I am glad you liked it.
