Adam- 26 January 2020 - UK ♥♥♥ Was a very nice morning trip to Sweden to walk along the beach and then see native Seals. Manuel was a very nice host always checking in and being friendly. However, ultimately we went to a public reserve and so just felt that it was quite pricey considering what it was as could have been done ourselves. My Answer: Dear Adam sorry you feel that way! Everything can be done by ourselves of course, but are you sure you could have had the same experience? Did you know about the best time to get there (as I replanned the experience to get the best chance to see the seals) ? And where to go, check the weather, the tide to be sure to have a safe and enjoyable experience?And could you spot the seals if you were by yourself? And last, did you know how to approach the seals not only in the best way for us to get the best pictures, as the 31 taken by my professional equipment that i sent to you, but also in the best way to not scare away the seals? As I told you I'm sorry you feel this way and that you think all my effort as Nature guide, with all the info shared with you, and as photographer was too pricey.
Axelle- 23 January 2020 - France ♥♥♥♥♥ Excellente journée aux côtés de Manuel. Passionné par son métier et par la nature, il est très facile d'échanger avec lui. J'ai eu la chance de voir de nombreux phoques. Expérience réussie !
(Had a great day with Manuel. Passionate about his profession and nature, it is very easy to interact with him. I have been fortunate to see many seals. Successful experience!)
Katerina- 20 January 2020 - Russia ♥♥♥♥♥ Manuel is a great experience host and genuinely is a very good person, he cares about the people he takes on the trip and also deeply cares about the environment (he was picking up trash people had left on the way, that was fantastic to notice!) and discussed how it is better to approach the wild animals without disturbing their natural way of living. We had a fantastic walk, saw the seals and managed to get quite close to take the pictures and also had many meaningful conversations with the host, overall a great thing to do if you have a free day in Copenhagen or Malmo and I will definitely send friends to spend a day with Manuel and the seals! ;)
Heidi- 18 January 2020 - USA ♥♥♥♥♥ Manual was a wonderful host and guide! We were able to see the seals, get some great photos, and enjoy some coffee and pastries thanks to his planning. He was also kind enough to assist in setting us up for our next adventure by giving us more direct transportation. Highly recommend this experience and host. Thanks, Manual!
Héloïse- 17 Jauary 2020 - France ♥♥♥♥♥ It was my first experience on Airbnb, and I am quite sure that I won’t find another one as good as this wonderful one! Manuel was very patient as our bus was delayed, he takes us directly from the bus station and drive us to the natural reserve. After a pleasure walk and many interesting anecdotes about the nature, photography and many other things, we finally saw the grey sales. We were lucky with the weather, there were so many and we took pictures (btw thanks for the advice!!) with his professional material. I definitely recommend this experience, because of the grey seals but also the great guide who is Manuel. I learned a lot thanks to him. It was a real pleasure to meet you (and the Swedish cake was so good), thanks for this moment of share and hope to see you again between Italy, Sweden and Poland!
Alberto- 13 January 2020 - Italy ♥♥♥♥♥ Un paesaggio bellissimo, e già questo vale la pena, camminare sulla sabbia vicino alle onde per circa mezz'ora, scoprire lo sguardo curioso delle foche e vederle giocare. È stata una bellissima esperienza che senza l'aiuto di Manuel non saremmo stati in grado di organizzare! Consigliatissimo!
(A beautiful landscape, and this is already worthwhile, walking on the sand near the waves for about half an hour, discovering the curious gaze of the seals and watching them play. It was a wonderful experience that without Manuel's help we wouldn't have been able to organize! Highly recommended)
Nicole- 13 January 2020 - Germany ♥♥♥♥♥ Der Ausflug war etwas besonderes. Manuel kennt sich nicht nur gut mit der Umgebung, sondern auch mit dem Gebiet darum herum aus. Außerdem hat er großen Wert auf das Wohl der Tiere gelegt, und aktiv darauf geachtet, dass der Ort frei von Müll bleibt.
(The trip was something special. Manuel not only knows the area well, but also the area around it. He also attached great importance to the welfare of the animals, and took great care to ensure that the place remains free of garbage.)
Michela- 12 January 2020 - Italy ♥♥♥♥♥ Esperienza incredibile, immersi nella natura, oltre alle foche è la complessiva escursione ad affascinare e con una guida come Manuel è stato davvero indimenticabile! Lo consigliamo sicuramente, ha reso il nostro viaggio particolarmente pieno.

Daria- 9 January 2020 - Russia ♥♥♥♥♥ Это одно из лучших впечатлений, который я могла бы получить. Мануэль действительно увлечён природой и тем, чем он занимается. Несмотря на не очень хорошую погоду, я получила массу удовольствия от наблюдения за животными в их среде обитания и от общения с организатором. Мануэль хорошо подготовился - у него есть профессиональное оборудование для фотографии, бинокли и увлекательные истории о тюленях, птицах и вообще о жизни. Отдельно отмечу очень вкусные булочки в качестве угощения :) Я однозначно рекомендую это мероприятие, оно уникально и дарит ощущение единения с природой. Даже мои друзья, которые не так любят животных, как я, были впечатлены. Спасибо!
(This is one of the best experiences I could get. Manuel is truly passionate about nature and what he does. Despite the not very good weather, I got a lot of pleasure from observing the animals in their environment and from communicating with the organizer. Manuel is well prepared - he has professional equipment for photography, binoculars and fascinating stories about seals, birds and life in general. Separately, I note very tasty buns as a treat :) I definitely recommend this event, it is unique and gives a feeling of unity with nature. Even my friends, who do not like animals like me, were impressed. Thanks!)
Léa- 8 January 2020 - Luxembourg ♥♥♥♥♥ We had the chance to take part in a unique and incredible experience, and to discover more about these magnificent animals. Manuel is a very good guide, kind, communicative, he knows perfectly his subject and even allowed me to use his professional camera. We were able to retrieve our photos at the end of the experience which is a real plus! It was a pleasure and I would like to thank Manuel again for making us discover the beauty of nature and for his advice and anecdotes about Copenhagen and Malmo!
Davide- 5 January 2020 - Italy ♥♥♥♥♥ Host simpatico e accogliente, natura fantastica e suggestiva.

Theresa- 1 January 2020 - Germany ♥♥♥♥♥ Diese Tour war ein besonderes Erlebnis für mich. Ich habe die schöne Wanderung am Meer entlang trotz Wind und Kälte genossen. Warme Kleidung ist unbedingt erforderlich. Und am Ende dann die Belohnung. Robben ganz aus der Nähe beobachten zu können ist für jeden Naturliebhaber sicher etwas ganz besonders. Manuel ist sehr nett, hilfsbereit und freundlich. Er hat unsere Gruppe den ganzen Weg unterhalten und sein Wissen über die Natur und seine Bewohner mit uns geteilt. Am Ende gab es noch Kaffee und Kuchen. Ein rundum gelungenes Erlebnis.
(This tour was a special experience for me. I enjoyed the beautiful hike along the sea despite the wind and cold. Warm clothing is essential. And in the end the reward. Watching seals up close is something special for every nature lover. Manuel is very nice, helpful and friendly. He kept our group entertained all the way and shared his knowledge of nature and its inhabitants with us. In the end there was coffee and cake. An all-round successful experience.)

Lukas- 31 December 2019 - Germany ♥♥♥♥♥ Definetly a unique experience at a special place
Fernando- 30 December 2019 - Spain ♥♥♥♥♥ Bonita experiencia. Tuvimos muy buen tiempo para ser fin de año. Pudimos observar a las focas de cerca, y disfrutar de un paseo por la naturaleza. Una playa preciosa. Manuel se preocupó de darnos una buena atención. Agradable conversación. Agradecemos que nos fuese a buscar, ya que nos equivocamos de estación. Nosotros éramos dos personas. La visita se hizo conjuntamente con otro grupo de 5 personas. Viaje en microbus. Paseo por la playa. Cafe y galletas al terminar la experiencia para entrar en calor. Preciosas fotografias. Gracias!
(Nice experience We had very good time to be the end of the year. We were able to observe the seals up close, and enjoy a nature walk. A beautiful beach. Manuel worried about giving us good attention. Nice conversation We appreciate you going to look for us, since we are wrong about the station. We were two people. The visit was made jointly with another group of 5 people. Travel by microbus. Walk on the beach Coffee and cookies at the end of the experience to get warm. Beautiful pictures. Thank you!)
Marc- 30 December 2019 - Spain ♥♥♥♥♥ Manuel is a very nice person. We felt very comfortable since the first moment. He contacted with us some days before and he prepared the activity very well, with a lot of details. He gave us a lot of information and told stories about seals but also about Malmo and Sweden. We highly recommend this experience.
Chiara- 29 December 2019 - Italy ♥♥♥♥♥ Esperienza fantastica! Manuel ci ha saputo trasmettere tutta la sua passione. Dopo una passeggiata nella riserva naturale abbiamo raggiunto il punto migliore per vedere le foche. Manuel ci ha anche permesso di scattare foto con la sua attrezzatura e a fine tour ci ha offerto una merenda. A parte il forte vento è stata una bellissima esperienza che consiglio a tutti, grandi e soprattutto bambini!
(Fantastic experience! Manuel has been able to convey all his passion to us. After a walk in the nature reserve we reached the best point to see the seals. Manuel also allowed us to take photos with his equipment and at the end of the tour he offered us a snack. Apart from the strong wind it was a beautiful experience that I recommend to everyone, adults and especially children!)
Yuliia- 29 December 2019 - Ukraine ♥♥♥♥♥ An experience of a lifetime! Manuel is such a caring host and an amazing storyteller with insider tips about living in both Copenhagen and Malmö. The natural reserve we visited is so beautiful and I would never have found it by myself being a tourist. We were lucky and got the chance to see the seals really close - they are so cute ☺️. It gets pretty windy and cold in winter by the sea (obviously), but some thermal underwear is enough to enjoy the tour to the most. Recommend!
Issariya- 28 December2019 - Thailand ♥♥♥♥♥ It’s unique and great experience. Manuel is very nice and knowledgeable. He shared his expertise with us which showed his passions and his respect of nature. Even though the first stop at Måkläppens we couldn’t only see the seals swimming around, we finally saw and could take photos of them sunbathing on rocks by the coast on the way back to Malmö. Thanks to Emanuel effort to help us find the spot and pack a nice memory from this activity back home. Highly recommended.
Qian- 23 December 2019 - China ♥♥♥♥♥ It was amazing!!!! We got to see a lot of seals and birds and they are really amazing creatures! It’s so cute when they are checking the people.

Pierre-Louis- 17 December 2019 - France ♥♥♥♥♥ We had an amazing time! Despite the cold weather it was truly enjoyable, we managed to see the seals from up close and they even followed us in the water the whole time. The walk to see them gave us the opportunity to discover a beautiful landscape. Manuel was also a wonderful host and even took extra time to show us the beautiful bridge between Sweden and Danemark. I highly recommend this experience.
Ionela- 5 December 2019 - Italy ♥♥♥♥♥ To do at least once in a lifetime!
Sohrab- 5 December 2019 - India ♥♥♥♥♥ What an amazing day. Manuel is great and the trip is worth braving all sorts of weather to be a part of.

Manuela- 29 November 2019 - Romania ♥♥♥♥ The experience was great. I would recommend this kind of experience, but on warm and sunny days. The cold weather was an impediment, but it showed us that we and our bodies are capable to endure a lot of things.
Teresa- 29 November 2019 - Austria ♥♥♥♥♥ Manuel was a very nice guide, he has very much knowledge about the nature and animals and was very friendly and communicative :) the beach was windy and beautiful, it was truly an experience! PS: fika was also very good
Rhonda- 28 November 2019 - USA ♥♥♥♥♥ What a great and unique experience to see coastal wildlife and walk alongside a Swedish beach in a nature reserve. Highly recommend.
ROni - 24 November 2019 - USA ♥♥♥♥♥ Highly recommend adventures with Manuel. Very easy to communicate with about pick up etc and speedy responses to messages. Manuel is friendly and extremely knowledgable about wildlife and nature and I could tell that it is his passion and that he loves sharing it with others. It was a pleasure and unique experience going out with him to see the seals and they were so cute bobbing their heads out of the water. Luckily we got there early enough to see some seals even though the winds were so high!! When we left large crowds were coming and for sure they would have scared them away so I'm glad Manuel got us there in time. I hope to explore with Manuel some more in the future. I'd love to see the eagles and white tailed deer. I am sure there will be more fun to come. Good luck to you Manuel!.
Eleanor - 24 November 2019 - UK ♥♥♥♥♥ We had a great time seeing the seals. It was a windy day so unfortunately they weren’t on the sand but we could see them in the water and Manuel pointed them out and provided binoculars to use as well. Manuel was very easy to chat to and spoke passionately about the animals and nature in Sweden. Would recommend this experience.
Matthew- 24 November 2019 - UK ♥♥♥♥♥ Good experience enjoyed by me and my girlfriend. We were disappointed to not see more seals and seals close up but we liked seeing seals from a distance popping out of the water. On the whole it was an enjoyable experience and was definitely worth doing!
Victoria - 22 November 2019 - UK ♥♥♥♥♥ A fantastic experience in Malmö for my birthday. Manuel was friendly, knowledgeable and he made the excursion private for just me and my partner for my birthday which was really special. We saw lots of seals, getting close enough for a good look but remaining far enough away so they didn’t get scared. Manuel took lovely photos of the seals and let us have a go too! We got the photos to keep as a souvenir via google drive and we got them really promptly. He also provided some binoculars so we could get a good view of the seals swimming too. I cannot recommend this excursion enough, if you love seals and/or nature you’ll have a fantastic time. If I’m ever back in Malmö I’d definitely book to go again. Highlight of my holiday, thank you Manuel!
Matteo - 19 November 2019 - Italy ♥♥♥♥♥ Aver conosciuto Manuel è stata una bella sorpresa! L'organizzazione, comunicazione (prima e nel mentre) è stata perfetta. Disponibile, gentile, competente ma soprattutto un vero amante della natura e degli animali. Ha saputo raccontare e spiegare tanti argomenti, sia inerenti all'esperienza sia a curiosità nostre. La foca è veramente un animale straordinario ed affascinante...sono stato contento di aver fatto questa esperienza! Vi consiglio tanto di farlo con Manuel, per la persona che è e la passione che ci mette e che trasmette. Bravo davvero!
(Meeting Manuel was a nice surprise! The organization, communication (before and during) was perfect. Available, kind, competent but above all a true lover of nature and animals. He was able to tell and explain many topics, both inherent to the experience and to our curiosities. The seal is truly an extraordinary and fascinating animal ... I was happy to have had this experience! I highly recommend you to do it with Manuel, for the person he is and the passion he puts into us and transmits. Really good!)
Anaya - 17 November 2019 - UK ♥♥♥ I was very excited about this experience, and it was a lovely day. But unfortunately, as is the case with most nature-related experiences, we didn’t get to see any seals. So it was a but of a let down. But this was no fault of Manuel, the host. Such is nature. Despite that, he made us feel very welcome. And I had a great morning!!
(For the record, the same day I had other guests and another review, below, in which they admit to having seen the seals, which really happened... )
Alex - 16 November 2019 - Hungary ♥♥♥♥♥ This was an amazing place. We saw the seals far from the cost. It was windy nevertheless you must relive it...
Dalibor - 16 November 2019 - Czech Republic ♥♥♥♥♥ Great experience, highly recommend to everybody.
Andrea - 12 November 2019 - Switzerland ♥♥♥♥♥ Arrived in Malmo late because of the train Manuel immediately proved to be a person friendly, patient and very helpful. As a true lover of nature and its landscapes, Manuel will take you to a unique place with an exceptional panorama, providing you with lots of information, not only on seals, but also on many other animals living in the reserve. In addition to personal anecdotes and customs of Sweden. Observing the seals in their natural environment was a unique experience. Seals turned out to be very nice and curious animals: they watched us curious and even followed us for a while during the return. Manuel is an enthusiast and expert in natural photography and will also provide you with some interesting tips and tricks for taking better pictures, immortalizing you too during the hike. Fascinating experience that I recommend to every nature and animal lover.
Julien- 10 November 2019 - France ♥♥♥♥♥ Manuel was very kind with us ! We talked a lot about Swedish culture and it was very interesting ! We saw several seals on the beach and in the water ! It was very cute !! We used his camera to take some amazing pictures. And Manuel shot us to immortalise that incredible moment !!
Nikoletta- 9 November 2019 - Hungary ♥♥♥♥♥ I would highly recommend to take this tour. It’s really woth it. It was a really unique experience to see the animals being free and happy in the beautiful nature. I could connected to the life there. Our tour guide was very kind, helpful and friendly, we were constantly talking and I felt like we’ve known each other for years. We’ve been picked up from our preferred location at a preferred time in front of our accomodation in Malmö at 10 am, as we were arrived quite late in the previous evening. We got some traditional Swedish breakfast with coffe which was really delicious. If we visit Malmö or Coppenhagen next time we will go for an other tour guided by Manuel. Thank you very much for this experience!!
Alice - 6 November 2019 - Australia ♥♥♥♥♥ Loved seeing the seals in their habitat! Manuel is such an insightful and decent bloke. Thanks heaps
Rhita- 3 November 2019 - Morocco ♥♥♥♥♥ Très belle expérience. Manuel est une personne super sympathique, un bon vivant et un amoureux de la Nature.
