I give 5 stars because you can't give more. Fantastic experience, worth every euro spent! The guys who accompanied us during the excursion were very good and very professional, caring first and foremost about our safety, but also about our fun. Arriving at the southernmost point of the island, they gave us various valuable information about the island itself and the numerous films that have been shot there. If you are staying in the southern part of Fuerteventura this excursion is a must which I highly recommend enjoying.
