Very nice experience, very nice vew from the peak. Our guide is great too, he took care us well. We took the tour during the off season time in Jan so it turned out only 2 of us in the tour, same as a private tour. The weather was not the best with a lot of rain and wind in the mountain area but not all the time, you can experience different seasons in the same day which was fun too. Rain then sunshine and rain then sunshine again and the rainbows followed us all the way. We knew the weather was not the best when we booked but still decided to go for it, so don’t let the weather to stop you.

We booked a second tour with True Spirit as we enjoyed the first so much. This was a half day tour with Diogo who was also friendly, informative and fun. We were lucky to have great weather the whole morning, getting to see incredible views along our journey and at the main sights. The off roading was fantastic and with great views and lots of nature and wildlife to be seen. Love how ethical this company is too, with Diogo picking up any rubbish he saw on the way

Super, To do absolutely. Thank you to our driver and guide who led us to see superb landscapes. And in smaller part of 4x4 to conclude. We had a great time. To do. Be careful if you do this activity in the morning bring warm clothing for the moment when you cross the interior of the mountains and forest.
