What people are saying about Water Sports | Italy



We had a fantastic Bodenga 2 tour. It was so much fun that we right away wanted to do it again, although, as outstanding tours usually are, it was a little exhausting - but in a good way! I have to restrain myself with praise for Ivan and Philippe; they are a truly professional, very very experienced and great fun team to be around. At no point, any of us felt unsafe, even we couldn’t always imagine what was coming next. We will definitely look into Ivan’s other tours and hope to book again soon !



An absolutely amazing time spent with Ivan and Filipo! Super experts, really fun to be with, and good guys all around. The trip was 100% memorable, well organised, safe, but challenged my kids, while building their confidence in a breathtaking setting. A HUUUGE thanks!



I tried to contact Explore-Sharing several times but either I wouldn't get an answer or they weren't very helpful. I am still supposed to get money back (they charged me too much and we ended up being two less people doing the canyoning) but even though I wrote several emails and they said they were going to come back to me, they still haven't. Can you pls look into this and reimburse me?
