What people are saying about Centro Region

I liked it a lot. The boat tides a little and more if you are not used to it but the guides are very nice and friendly. They called me a day before to explain everything and tell me where I had to go. The fact is that when I got there I got lost but I managed to contact them and they indicated me perfectly.

Feeling Berlenga was great! They were very experienced and knowledgeable, accommodating, and clearly wanted their guests to not only have a fun and enjoyable time, but also be safe in doing so. The company was super easy and I work with, good communication, and a Len overall no hassle experience.

All tour guides were informative and pleasant. This is definitely an adventure that a tour guide is absolutely necessary to learn of the history. Great value for the money.
