Very nice guide on site, speaks some English. Booking, payment / PayPal, processing, contact via booking portal perfect. We were lucky enough to paddle into the cave all by ourselves with our guide Jeremi on the 10:30 am tour. Wonderful impressions and relaxed when the sea is calm. The old fishing village - where the tour starts - breathtaking. The journey to the parking lot, on the other hand, is adventurous, only for experienced, intrepid drivers, especially if you take the route through the cemetery, as shown in Google Maps. Unpaved, sloping serpentine road, one can only hope that the rental car won't fall apart - and that it has GOOD BRAKES! There is also the possibility to take a taxi downstairs. All in all very recommendable.

Very impressive to see how this island is built and to see the interior! Everything is clearly explained. Bizarre is also that I have been here, and a few days later a volcano erupted on the Cumbre Vieja, also because the guide said that volcanic activity had been measured in the past week

Today we went for a snorkel tour and it was amazing! Our guide Elisa was super friendly, very helpfull and cautious. As we didn’t have any experience we felt ourselves immediately comfortable with her. We would recommend this to anyone! Great experience

A wonder of nature ... Super nice guide who answered all our questions in broken but easy to understand German.

A very interesting and very enjoyable visit with the guide who has taken us.
