Maria our guide was amazing, she was so knowledgeable and full of information about the island and every place visited. She was friendly and very approachable if anyone had any questions, she could speak several languages and made sure everyone felt part of the group. The round of applause she got from everyone including myself just tells you had good she was. I would highly recommend this tour, visited many places and lucky enough to stop when a couple of local markets were on, so could stock up on things for lunch,like fruit, homemade cakes and bread.

I really liked the tour, although there were times when it was not accompanied we could see spectacular landscapes. The guide, Marina, wonderful, very attentive and very friendly. It made the excursion short for us. I wish there were more workers like that.

It was well arranged. When booking, boarding point could also be entered later. The organization immediately sent me an email about this. They then indicated which pick-up point was closest to our hotel.

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!

Excelent service, nice gide, very interesting visit to cofey plantation.
