This was one of the best guided tours of our life ; Such an amazing experience, our guide Dinarte was absolutely fantastic, such an amazing guy; he did everything possible for us to get the best views and photos and to have the most amazing time ; very knowledgeable and friendly; we spent a lot of time up in the mountains for some of the most incredible views , had an amazing lunch(15€) , a few drinks along the way during our trip at some popular spots; we were lucky enough to share our trip with two other lovely couples that made the trip quite unforgettable. We are amazed every second of the beauty of this island ,we did do quite a bit of trips before this (guided ones), and I must say this was definitely the best. to everyone that wants to do this bring a swimming suit and some towels , wear something comfortable, preferably have cash on you and be ready to be amazed!!!

A very complete tour; It was a pleasure to be able to delve into the bowels of the island and get to know it in depth thanks to our guide Hugo, who explained everything to us in a clear, concrete and concise way. I highly recommend it. I will repeat.

Our guide, Pedro, was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and made sure to make the trip as enjoyable and adventurous as possible. The off-road section was amazing! The issue I had was that Green Devils who ran the trip, didn’t inform me that they’d outsourced to another jeep company. This led to an uncomfortable situation where I was telling the Green Devil jeep driver who turned up at the hotel that I was with them. He phoned the office and was told that I’d been placed with another company. I phoned Fernando, the boss who told me that due to technical repairs on two of their own jeeps, I was relocated. I responded that it would have been fair and professional to tell me beforehand. We drove in a convoy of three, with the Green Devil as the lead jeep. However, despite the initial confusion, the trip still gets a five star rating as it was excellent and great value for money!
