Our tour guide was Joanna, and she was very lovely! She gave us a lot of interesting details during our tour, many thanks for her! The smoothie she prepared at the farm was delicious and we also purchased some local things at the market as souvenirs. It was worth it, thank you again!

Hugo was amazing, knew great knowledge of the area and the farm. Highly recommend booking this trip! Get a smoothie down at the farm where they sell fresh fruit to purchase also with a fresh lemonade stand which is ace!

The appointment was fixed at the center at 3 hours on foot from our location. They picked us up right in front of our accommodation. The activity corresponds in every way. It was very nice. I recommend.

Nice friendly driver, fun tour in eco-friendly e-tuk tuk. Good to easily get an overview of what is where in Costa Adeje.

Excellent, we loved our trip with Hugo. Very friendly. Thank you so much
