Great tour. Would recommend even I think we could do it on our own as we had car. But we really enjoyed. The hike could be longer as it was only 2 hours all together not 4 as advertised. The driver and tour guide were friendly and even we stuck in the snow they had to put big effort to get the bus back on the road. They keep us safe and comfortable. Well done. Over all great communication and organisation.

Good service. Communication could have been a bit better prior to pick-up, but overall no issues whatsoever. We were picked up on time and the car was clean, the driver was excellent. Highly recommended this car service.

Our driver was punctual, and sent a message on WhatsApp letting us know he'd be arriving shortly. The drive was much more convenient than cabbing to BSI, and then boarding a bus to the airport.

The volcano adventure was fantastic! We hike to the view point of the volcano and the hike and the views were STUNNING!!

On time, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Recommended!
