Guide was informative, friendly and made tour fun

I had great day on the 4x4 tour plenty of stops along the way for toilets, refreshments, tourist shop and to enjoy the view. Even though it was quite chilly I enjoyed the swim in the natural pools in Porto Moniz. I really feel I got to see a lot of the island on this tour and through our guide we learnt a lot about the island as well. Its a very relaxed but fun tour highly recommend it.
