Cool trip to the most known and must-see places of the north part of the island. Doing so in the 4wheel made it more fun and let us travel some different roads. The guide and the vibe is upbeat, and it’s encouraged to participate - it’s not trip for those who just want to sightsee, but for sure a trip for those who wants some fun on the way!

It was fun, our guide, Bruno was amazing, both as a driver and as a guide, his English was perfect and he was enthusiastic an funny. Off road drive was thrilling and all the spots we visited were magical. We were afraid lunch would be mediocre, but it was very tasty.

A top experience with top drivers, we were lucky that the weather was nice and open so that we could drive off road high in the mountains. Nice views and exciting laps steeply up with a large jeep. Very nice guys who knew a lot to tell us, port moniz was also beautiful with a beautiful natural swimming pool. Recommended.
