Highly Recommended!!

We had Valdemar as a guide, who clearly loves his island and can also convey it super. The tour was really diverse and not overrun by tourists. Valdemar took us to the best vantage points, explained a lot and gave it a try. The off-road tours were another special highlight and were a lot of fun. The lunch offered for 12 € was definitely worth it and brought us closer to the home kitchen. At rum tasting we were offered the "fire water" to try. This extremely successful tour ended with a local poncha in a typical bar!

In advance there was an email from the organizer at the pick-up time. There were four of us with our guide Valdemar from Green Devils Tour in a jeep. Many small corners, which would otherwise have been neglected, were visited and explanations provided. Magnificent vantage points alternated with explanations of the local flora, rounded off with off-road excursions. A great trip!

Die Tour war super, allerdings nicht auf Deutsch wie gebucht, sondern auf Englisch (keine vorab-Info). Fahrzeug und Guide Anna waren aber absolut ok, wir haben viel erklärt bekommen und konnten viele Fotos machen. Das Mittagessen sollte man unbedingt mitnehmen, man bekommt für die 12 Euro ein komplettes, sehr leckeres Menü.
