The visit was very interesting and informative. The food, excellent. Our guide Rosi explained everything wonderfully and was very friendly. The bad luck was that we lost about 45 minutes (me waiting at the maritime station) due to the delay of the ferry that came from Tenerife. The rest is fine. And the driver Jesus was most skilled.
