Despite some difficulties in finding the meeting point (Saturday market day) everything is back to normal. Exceptional guide speaks 90% French, more than enough to explain the entire history of the islands (fauna, flora, etc.) 3 very pleasant hours. Great professional with a touch like at home
Glad we found this. Nice way to spend our last morning en route to the airport. Rui was a friendly and informative guide, and we saw parts of local life we would otherwise have missed. Recommended.
Good skiper with amazing nature. Very enjoyable trip
