Each visitor will individually elaborate their own cheese. In this place you will also have more information about the different majorero cheeses that exist, differences in formats with respect to the ripening time, ... and much more.

What people are saying about Fuerteventura

great tour Skipper was very nice and there was enough time to swim. The sea was a bit choppy and we didn't see any dolphins. But the tour is a nice experience just because of the sailing.

We are so happy that we decided to do this before we left. Our two guides were so so nice. We had a great time and the food was great. Perfect 4 hours and money well spent.

Everything was terrific, we had a nice group of 12 randommers, some couples, some families, all good fun, and the captains made it a great experience.

Absolute must do. Best day of the whole holiday. I cannot fault the boat (boat 50) and the team were just fab. Nothing was too much for them .

Well organised, chilled, fun. Lovely experience and great value for money
