Guide was informative, friendly and made tour fun

I had great day on the 4x4 tour plenty of stops along the way for toilets, refreshments, tourist shop and to enjoy the view. Even though it was quite chilly I enjoyed the swim in the natural pools in Porto Moniz. I really feel I got to see a lot of the island on this tour and through our guide we learnt a lot about the island as well. Its a very relaxed but fun tour highly recommend it.

Our day with Pedro is one we will always remember; he was very informative, polite & professional, this tour gave us more ideas for future visits which we would not hesitate to book with the company again. The lunch stop at Jungle Rain cafe exceeded our expectations, food was just beautiful.
