This tour is great to get to know the west of the island a little more and to explore something yourself. The guide Diogo is very nice and always gives interesting information in between! The long break at Porto Moniz was perfect because you had so much time to go swimming in the volcanic pool. I can only recommend :)

The driver was very nice and informative, I liked that it was a small group tour. But it's a very fast paced tour, you're jumping in and out of the van for quick stops, take some photos and on we go. The exception was the lava pools, where we had a 2h break to eat and jump in the pools.

The tour is well planned. We were picked up in front of our accommodation on time. Our guide George is absolutely great and explained everything to us very well. We had enough time at each tour point and he even helped us with booking lunch. We can only recommend this tour!! Thank you for this wonderful day.
