Anbefales! Ble hentet da vi skulle, kjørt opp og ble raskt satt sammen med en hest som passet vår høyde og erfaring. Flink instruktør. Gikk en runde, de som ville trave/galoppere fikk det. Varte i mere 3 timer enn 2, men dette var bare bra for oss som deltok. Ble kjørt tilbake til hotellet med en gang etterpå.

pickup/dropoff from/at hotel, very nice driver, amazing views, lunch included (tasty), lots of details from our driver & very entertaining, even though was in spanish with some words in english & we did not understand everything - worth taking the tour

The tour around the island was great. Fabriz/Fabio was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of fascinating information. Each stop was interesting and we saw everything we wanted to and more!
