Marco was great! Very knowledgeable about the islands, cautious about Covid, and helping us out of the van, which had a long step down. Seems he knew all the dogs along his route and always smiled at them and was very caring towards them. Gotta love a guide that loves dogs!

The trip was amazing. Our tour guide was Ruben. Great guide, real pro. He did the tour fascinating, full of interesting fact and jokes. It was my second tour with Ruben and I definitely can say that you will have a great time if you are in his group :)

our day trip was amazing. Diogo our guide was so insightful and friendly and took time to explain points of interest around the isalnd. pick up and drop off went well and we had no issues with the trip.

Great experience with Diogo who went out of his way to restructure the trip due to a poorly passenger. His driving was exciting and fun with rollercoaster rides through the puddles.

Great to see dolphins in the open sea and guide explanation of the different species
