Fantastic experience. Went with my kids aged 14 and 16 and had a great trip. None of us cycle very much but wasn’t a problem, as the bikes did a lot of the hard work. The guide was fantastic and looked after us all the way and the scenery was incredible. Initial trip from this app/site was from Caleta de Fuste, but we moved the trip to the north of the island. A great way to see the North of the island and get get some great pictures from tops of volcanoes and amazing beaches. I highly recommend this trip and the company that ran it. Thank you.

A great experience, the trekking was more difficult than I expected, I am not saying it is difficult, but for me it was, but thanks to Pepe, the guide, I was able to do it, thanks Pepe, and also to the canine companion. Walk through the ravine was wonderful, the lighthouse has spectacular views and the return coasting all the beautiful north.

It was a wonderful trip! Annemarie, our guide was just perfect for us. We were also very fortunate that the group was a great fit in and of itself. We had these two great hiking sections and talked about God and the world during the whole trip. I can only recommend it and if you are lucky you will also get Annemarie as a guide. Have fun! ;-)

Had an exciting excursion with Pepe, a lot of information about what he showed us. He spoke very clearly in English, and technical terms were no problem either. Absolutely to be recommended.

Easy trip around volcano. Perfect view of the norten part of the Island. Nice day outside the hotel resort. Thank's a lot Pepe
