One of the best activities done while on vacation in recent years. Eine von den besten Aktivitäten die wir in den Ferien während den letzten Jahren gemacht haben. Einmalige Führung, sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, viele Informationen und Erklärungen bekommen, haben viel schönes gesehen und erlebt und ein sehr schmackhaftes und gesundes Mittagessen angeboten bekommen. Wir hatten einen herrlichen Tag zusammen, auch wenn das heisse Wetter eine Wanderung etwas anstrengender als anfangs gedacht gemacht hatte. Seine Activities empfehlen wir unbedingt weiter. Nochmals vielen Dank für die schönen Stunden zusammen. Family Michaelis from Belgium

An all-round successful excursion that we can recommend 100%. Everything was really right, whether punctual pickup, the individual stages, delicious tapas and not to forget our super competent, very nice guide (Ren'e?). Although we have been coming to the island for almost 30 years, he has given us a lot of new impressions.

Absolutely worth it! Very personable and competent guide who obviously puts a lot of effort into it. Interesting tour with lots of additional information and great sights. Great mix of nature and culture, even with a culinary highlight. We would do the tour again at any time and can only warmly recommend it!

Roberto and Gino were great guides and took us around the island to see the aloe vera production, goat cheese factory, the elephant mountain and much more. It was a fun day with great new things to learn. Thank you both!

Very good driver and guide, very informative and interesting
