Booking and payment via the app was very easy. We also liked the memories of the tours. Our driver was Vasco, happy and in a good mood he entertained us very well the whole time. It never got boring. History, country and people and also the plants and animals ... not a subject he didn't know anything about. We had a lot of fun, saw and experienced a lot. Lunch was delicious too. And at some point the tour was unfortunately over again. Any time.

What an incredible day out! We were lucky enough to witness beautiful dolphins that day. Alfredo and his colleague are not only knowledgeable about the beautiful marine life but have deep respect for them and the ocean. If you want to try and spot dolphins and possibly other marine life if you’re lucky, then go with this company. They’re great!
