    There were two different providers. The whale watching tour was very hectic and unfortunately we couldn't really see whales. The boat trip was still fun. At the end the boat went to a dolphin school. So we saw at least a few more animals Guides, on the other hand, were very attentive. People were informed in many languages. We can give 3 thumbs up for the volcano tour by Green Visions. The guide's knowledge of history and biology was very impressive. Since we were alone, we had an exclusive tour. Lunch at Carlos' was fantastic, we felt very well taken care of by our guide, and we can only recommend this tour

Very attentive from the first moment, punctual and friendly. He helped us at all times to make the most of the island with its incidences. 100% recommended. Thank you
