We transferred to the extended tour of North Fuerteventura. We were picked up in a minivan, together with one other couple and visited some of the highlights of the island. Our guide was attentive while giving us space at the same time. Especially the volcano is a must see if you are in the neighborhood. The hike up the volcano is not very far (about 15 minutes), but the last part is quite steep with loose and sharp rocks, so make sure you wear the right shoes.

Beautiful, relaxing and enjoyable afternoon! Pilot whales and dolphins at the rendezvous with a small snack and a proposal for swimming in a cove! Small confusion on the address but available immediately by phone. And arrangements for another time slot on the same day. Top guide French English Spanish taking care of his clients.

All facilities, hiring the activity, in communication, reception, the exceptional guide, already on the catamaran, everything very well explained On the French beach, on La Graciosa island, individual kayaks, abundant food, free drink Already in the Caleta del sebo port, shops, bars, and time to enjoy it ...

Three wonderful vacation hours - no wind for sailing, but smooth seas so that we had a clear view of whales, dolphins and turtles. It was also wonderful to cool off in the water. I would recommend it again at any time.

Excelent service, nice gide, very interesting visit to cofey plantation.
