Fantastic, especially the guide Martín, who knows perfectly how to make the trip enjoyable and interesting at the same time. He cares about everything with extraordinary professionalism. The trip very interesting and with many different stimuli. The only thing to improve would be to give more time at the food stop, especially in times of so much tourism with full bars.

It was a great experience. I loved all the places where we were, the tour guide (Martin) was very friendly, helpful and we had a lot of laughs with him. A charm!! And the fantastic boat ride. We stuffed ourselves with mussels that were delicious and a little white wine that went to the finger. In short.... I had a great time. I would repeat again.

What an amazing trip . Fabulous itinerary and great locations to visit. Our Guide Martin was first class with his knowledge. We never felt like we missed anything other than a few jokes with the Spanish / English translations. Highly recommend this trip. Really well organised and won’t hesitate to join another in the future.
