It was an awesome experience! We enjoyed our day from start to finish. I strongly advise you to take this excursion if you are looking for an activity to do. The views were amazing and great for taking pictures. We had the chance to taste local cuisine, and warm. In addition, the guide Vera is very nice and explained to us very well the course of this day, as well as the information concerning the visit.

Day to discover the interior of the island! The guide's explanations were very interesting and we discovered the history of this fantastic island! The same tour can also be done on your own but you wouldn't really know the island's past and present.
