Great day, nice guide, good and safe car driver

We had a great day and we saw so many beautiful landscapes. The guide Felipe was very friendly and told us a lot. He was also a good and safe car driver. It was really fun to drive around in a Land Roover. Thanks!

See the island off the tourist route

Fabulous tour off the beaten tourist track, beautiful views. Luisa was an excellent guide, knew her island history, nothing was too much trouble for her. Would highly recommend 4 WD Nordeste tour.
