Great views, great places!

Great tour! We were very lucky to do the tour alone. This gave us a lot of time and could see even more places than we were supposed to! Our guide Spencer could tell us a lot of interesting facts about the places, but also about the plants. 110% can only be recommended!

Unglaublicher Trip!!! Da wir die einzigen an diesem Tag waren die diesen Ausflug gebucht hatten, hatten wir einen "VIP-Trip". Der Fahrer war ein sehr netter, freundlicher und sehr kompetenter Führer, der uns vieles gezeigt und erklärt hat. Besonders der Off-road Teil war ein ganz tolles Erlebnis, ganz zu schweigen von den vielen Aussichtspunkten die diese wunderschöne Insel zu bieten hat. Auch die Aromen und Düfte die man hier unterwegs aufnimmt sind einfach unbeschreiblich. Ein wunderschöner und informativer Ausflug den wir jeden nur wärmstens empfehlen können. Sehr, sehr gerne wieder
