What a fantastic trip! I thoroughly enjoyed my Jeep adventure today. Vincent was our driver/guide/informer/comedian/cameraman. He was great to talk to, had a lot of information about the area and history, he always went the extra mile to assist people or take photos and give recommendations. There was a good amount of time stopping at each place. Cofete is 1000% worth visiting - just stunning. I was initially looking at car hire but I'm glad I chose the Jeep Safari instead as the roads would have been really tricky and uninsured. The Land Rovers make for a fun excursion! I saw goats, lizards, lots of fish in the turquoise waters. We could see all the way across the coast from the viewpoints and had a superb time. Would definitely recommend

We really enjoyed the tour with Marcel. During the whole trip we felt very safe (despite some dangerous road sections) and were well looked after. His insider knowledge of Cofete and Villa Winter was impressive and showed that he had invested a lot of time researching it. You could tell that Marcel really enjoys going on tours like this. It was also nice to see that he tried to be considerate of nature and the villagers as much as possible :) Marcel was also able to answer other questions about Fuerteventura in detail, he knows the island very-very well here!! We will definitely book more tours when we are back on the island :)))). Thank you for the fantastic trip!!!

Superb excursion that goes off the beaten track. We were amazed and our guide was simply extraordinary. Breathtaking places that we would never have seen otherwise. The format is ideal. To test

Funny guy, very good timing for the sunset and made sure that I catch my bus, I really appreciated it!

Safe driver with a very good knowledge, especially about Villa Winter.
