Individuality instead of generalism. Enjoyment instead of handling.

After we were picked up directly from our hotel by an air-conditioned and comfortable vehicle, our friendly guide suggested the planned stops next to the Roque Nublo and left us free to choose other sightseeing destinations. In general, we were free to determine which routes we take or how long we stay at the individual locations. Our guide took us to places of interest that we would never have found without his help. He never tired of providing us with anecdotes and background information and guiding us through the site in a safe way. Time pressure, rushing or maximizing profits, as is known from other tourism offers, never played a role. Our guide (definitely asked for Frank) was passionate about showing us the beauty of his home. His eagerness and informality deserve far more than the five stars possible here. Again any time! *****
