What a good day we have spent with RUI!! He is an excellent guide, he has taken us to see a lot of places adapting the plan to the weather at all times and to what we wanted. It's nice to be with people like that! You can tell he loves his job and knows a lot. I recommend it 100%.

Wow what a memorable tour this was! We cannot stop talking about it. Our guide Joao (John) was something else. He fluently speaks 6 languages, very professional, knowledgeable and funny! Not only he showed us the main sites but he also took us off the beaten track! I definitely recommend this tour 100%. Will be back next year and go on another trip with Joao.
