We had booked this jeep tour on October 14th, 2022. Our driver Adonis only spoke a little German, but he made up for it with his charming manner through understandable English. The tour took us to unique vantage points that you would not normally find. The small Bergcafe was a dream. We found the time in the mountain village of Zia a bit too short, but that was the only drawback. The lunch in Zia was also excellent. We were traveling with 2 couples who are friends and can only recommend this tour to all of them.

Steve is a skilful driver and a very entertaining guide. He had tons of cool stories to tell about the places we visited. The tour took us to some unique and beautiful spots that we certainly wouldn‘t have seen otherwise. The car was spotless and very comfortable. Unlike on other (boat) tours we took, the lunch at a tavern was delicious! We had a fun day and can highly recommend the experience. Thanks again Steve!

Our female tour guide was an absolute hit. She talked eloquently and super informatively about the island and its people, questions were answered in detail and the area around it was explained very clearly. It was great fun, we would book the tour again immediately!

Very nice tour with our super guide Adonis! We were in places and vantage points that we would never have seen otherwise. There was also a lot of interesting information about the island and its inhabitants. The food was delicious, just a little too fast for us.

The tour is very well organized and even surpasses the description. We had a German-speaking driver who told us a lot about the island and the inhabitants. No factual reporting, very personal! We had a lot of fun. Definitely highly recommended.
