Did the trip on January 5th, 2023 & are absolutely satisfied. Great guide, great bus driver, great tour. I recommend booking the whole tour as it allows you to get to know both sides of the island. Thumbs up!

The trip was well organized. Dear Vanessa brought a lot of information about this strange lava island. Was helpful too. Only the double-decker bus wasted a lot of time getting off.

wonderful to experience. The bus journey down was a spectacular experience for me. Jesus was a skillful driver. Radmila a good host.

It was a great way to enjoy the day and see lots of things. Our guide Erich was funny.

The bus is a bit late, but the rest went as planned.
