It was a wonderful trip to the western part of the island with Sete Cidades and many other stops with a magnificent view. Our guide Daniel was well informed and told us a lot about the history, flora and fauna. We will always remember the trip. Many Thanks again for the nice day trip.

Rodrigez (sorry for spelling and pronunciation) was a fabulous guide. Passionate very knowledgable about his homeland and shared that with us. The day was misty, yet he made it as enjoyable had it been sunny. Highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing and knowing a bit of Ponta Del Gada. Also one of us was in a wheelchair and he went out of his way to show everything, regardless of any disabilities, including getting us a table at a fabulous restaurant. OMG the food was to die for!

A memorable day

Paolo our guide was excellent. He made an effort to translate everything into French for us. He was very competent and passionately passed on his knowledge to us. The jeep was perfect and could accommodate up to 6 passengers. In our case, there were only 4 of us. I highly recommend this excursion. ------------------------- Paolo our guide was excellent.
