Juan did a great job of keeping us entertained and informed throughout the trip. The transfers were made with ease. The experience was enjoyable and I would recommend to other holidaymakers. Francisco did a great job of driving us through the mountains and on our return back to our hotels. Great to see a part of the island not previously enjoyed or seen. Well done to 'no frills' also for making this available.

We had the best time ever on our VIP private wine tasting! Our guide, Sergio, could not have been more delightful! The wine and tapas were amazing and we loved the tour. What a lovely way to spend our day! We could not have asked for more!!

Friendly to beginners, once in a lifetime experience, lots of walking but it was quite flat so not too difficult. I’d say prepare a waterproof bag so you can take picture when you are in the cave!

What a fun experience ! The crew was excellent and the spots they took us to were so beautiful

Excellent trip, definitely recommend! Great crew and drinks
