Scenery is unbelievable, 200km2 of vulcano natural Park, like being on the moon. The 3 hours walk was great to discover this, seeing the different kinds of lava, colors, landscapes, lichens. Really a must in my opinion as nothing comparable elsewhere. The guide Alejandro (?) was great, knowledgable, kind and easy going. Highly recommend.

Nos ha encantado,el trato,la amabilidad,la guía excelente,cariñosa,super atenta,y el chófer nos llevó con mucha seguridad, la zona donde nos llevaron increíbles, y la comida inmejorable, super controlado para que tuviéramos tiempo de almorzar con tranquilidad. Y muchos besos a la guía de los españoles Soledad y Francisco.

It was a very nice experience. 3h walk in the lava paths, and trails around the volcanoes. Such an incredible landscape. It feels like Mars. Alejandro our guide was very clear, he taught us a lot about the environment of the island. He came to pick us up at the hotel and drop us off.

Everything was well organized. From a lady who was already waiting for us at the bus stop and informed us that the bus was a little late, to the nice guide who explained everything nicely during the tour. No queues at the attractions and enough time to look around.

Fantastico. Fueron super flexibles para recogerme y dejarme de vuelta
