Truly amazing. Silva was amazing, fun, hilarious and knowledgeable. He made the trip 100 times better. This trip would be great in any case but having a driver/guide like Silva does make it all the better. Silva turned up early and watch the sunrise at our hotel and we immediately knew he would enjoy the trip as much as us and did this for the love of the island. He took us down some great tracks and his knowledge of the routes was second to none. There was never a silent moment! All in all a great trip and highly recommended

Bruno made our trip outstanding, he knew all the fun local roads for an exciting drive and facts about everywhere. When you’re in a car for a day a guide can make or break the trip, Bruno made it. Great combination of places to see, swimming in the pools is a must if the weather allows and the lunch restaurant stop was great. Nice food, lovely staff and reasonably priced. Thank you for a great day!

A lot packed into a day, felt like a lot of driving in between so when we did stop it was only for a few mins in comparison. Marsio was lovely although a bit quiet in the morning, once we started asking him questions though he was able to answer and tell us more about local culture etc which was interesting. Added in a couple more scenic stops in the afternoon which was great but by that time we were all feeling tired, especially after lunch. Maybe try moving some of the order around as we'd seen the majority of planned scenic stops before lunch at 2pm, lunch maybe around 12.30-13.00 with some more stops after would be better?
