What people are saying about Furnas

An amazing tour I loved everything I've seen. In winter very few people, ideal for the tour with peace of mind and without crowds. The tour had him hired in English (because there was no option in Spanish) but since we were just a couple from Madrid and I, the guide very kindly adapted and although he never does tours in Spanish he was perfectly understood. We were delighted with Rida!

Very good experience. Daniela, the guide, was very punctual and very good. Good temporal articulation of the visit. Great lunch
