Amazing excursion. We were collected from the hotel by Ann-Marie and taken to the goats. You can select your own, we chose Pinto and he was a character from the off. The group was lovely and the weather amazing. Lunch was served in a hut and it was yum! Goats cheese, tomatoes, bread, olives and red wine / water - all divine! The walk is up steep hills which of course you walk back down again - good grip shoes are advised. Just over 14,000 steps when back at the farm. The goats were hilarious and had to be walked on their leads more than usual that day - they were being mischievous & wanted to munch not trot! Cute.. Ann-Marie cut yum fruit for us from plants & spoke about the areas visited enroute. We recommend this excursion. Any questions you may have prior to the trip, Christina will advise - she phoned us to ensure all was okay & sort our meeting point. Thank you for a fantastic day.

The highlight of our Fuerteventura vacation! If you want to do a tour away from mass tourism, this is the place for you! Kristina was great - tried very hard to ensure that all participants were well at all times, knew a lot about the country and its people and took a lot of time. The hike with the goats was a lot of fun. We were 11 people and we went with 8 goats. The snacks that were served during the hiking break were also very tasty! My daughter was also happy that the tour was in German. If we had had more time, we would definitely have done one of the other tours from Fuerte Authentic Tours.

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!

This was the most active tour of my holiday but so much enjoyable especially hiking with the goats. I would only recommend this tour to people who are used to high activity because 2-3 hours of walking and some steep hills.

Wonderful experience Treking through the wilderness with some really behaved goats - good footwear is recommend
