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!
