Great day out. Going above the clouds into the sunshine was breath-taking. Half again as high as Ben Nevis in Scotland! Wow. The scenery and panoramic views were stunning. Our party was wonderfully international and were good company. A shout out to our guide Paula who looked after his eclectic group very well.

There is a deduction for the necessary telephone calls with the organizer whether the tour takes place, when now and in which language - although our request was confirmed by GYG. The tour itself was very nice and varied, the German-Portuguese guide was very nice and competent; luckily we only drove with 4 guests, because the closed jeep (booked was an open jeep) offers neither support nor sufficient headroom on the emergency seats.

Excellent day ! Great fun!

Good outdoor fun! We had a very pleasant day despite a small episode of rain at the start of the route. The 4x4 is equipped with plaids in case of a little cool wind but do not forget to take a sweatshirt with you. Lino, our driver, combined good humor and competence. Excellent value for money. Worth every extra-penny compared to a mini-van.
