The experience was exceptional. The slingshot car was providing quite high adrenaline sport drive feeling. The views of the surrounding volcanic landscape were mesmerizing, the beach and the green lake were nice highlights too. The guide Jonas was very helpful, fun and positive. The whole trip was well organized, even the manager came to talk to us when they found out we are from the same country :) We will definitely do it again on our next trip. Thank you Jonas and Moni :)

It was very nice tour, seen the most important places on the south part of the island. I enjoyed the guide's humor and him being very helpful. The only thing i didn't like that there was the camel ride option and some of us didn't feel like doing it and there was no other option to do in the meantime, we basically wasted here over an hour.

It was a great day in sunny Lanzarote. All professionally organised. Highly recommended for a day tour while staying in Fuerteventura.

Our guide was the best!! We have lought a lot! The tour is well organized and we visited amazing places! Well recommended

Very informative guide. Not really suitable for young children.
