They’ll never forget being accompanied by trained goats.  Watch the animals run free and take your turn walking them around on a leash.

Amazing excursion. We were collected from the hotel by Ann-Marie and taken to the goats. You can select your own, we chose Pinto and he was a character from the off. The group was lovely and the weather amazing. Lunch was served in a hut and it was yum! Goats cheese, tomatoes, bread, olives and red wine / water - all divine! The walk is up steep hills which of course you walk back down again - good grip shoes are advised. Just over 14,000 steps when back at the farm. The goats were hilarious and had to be walked on their leads more than usual that day - they were being mischievous & wanted to munch not trot! Cute.. Ann-Marie cut yum fruit for us from plants & spoke about the areas visited enroute. We recommend this excursion. Any questions you may have prior to the trip, Christina will advise - she phoned us to ensure all was okay & sort our meeting point. Thank you for a fantastic day.

The highlight of our Fuerteventura vacation! If you want to do a tour away from mass tourism, this is the place for you! Kristina was great - tried very hard to ensure that all participants were well at all times, knew a lot about the country and its people and took a lot of time. The hike with the goats was a lot of fun. We were 11 people and we went with 8 goats. The snacks that were served during the hiking break were also very tasty! My daughter was also happy that the tour was in German. If we had had more time, we would definitely have done one of the other tours from Fuerte Authentic Tours.

We really enjoyed the tour with the goats and Christina. The goats are doing very well, which was the most important point for us. Because of the heat, Christina tried very hard to look after us and kept asking if we were drinking enough. She even had some water with her, just in case. The small snack was delicious. A moderate level of physical fitness is an advantage as there are quite a few uphills and downhill sections on unpaved paths. We had a lot of fun :)
