The 'safari' was very enjoyable. We were picked up from nearby hotel and driven to meeting point in Morro Jable, with the opportunity for a coffee/loo stop whilst the various vehicles arrived from pick up points. We then set off and the roads quickly became very rough and extremely bendy, making us glad we were in an appropriate vehicle with an obviously skilled and experienced driver (Miguele). We passed two breakdown trucks en route and lots of people struggling in ordinary cars - making the apparently high cost worthwhile as we could just relax and enjoy the experience. Our guide was informative and entertaining. He asked several times if we were OK - we were loving it - and answered everyone's questions helpfully. Really glad we went this way - great fun, amazing views and no stress!

Great experience! The tour guide is very nice and had a lot of information for us. Although I was extremely afraid of the ride, I had a lot of fun and felt safe at all times. Thanks also for the beautiful pictures the guide took of all the guests. Personally, I would have liked more time on the beach and less time in Villa Winter, but I think that's a matter of taste. Take peanuts with you for the chipmunks you might see ;) and forget about driving your own car or rental car, we saw 2 people with flat tires and you're pretty upset down there...

I ordered the trip with a guide in German (due to the lack of available places in Polish). Once there, it turned out that by a lucky coincidence we found ourselves in a Polish group with a guide, Krzysiek, who lives in Fuerteventura. The trip is conducted in a relaxed, holiday atmosphere. A lot of interesting facts, both thematic and musical;) I recommend a trip to Cofete with this team to everyone. It's worth it because it's a must-see on this island.

It is the best tour we have done in Fuerteventura. Thanks to the guide Michele who gave us a lot of information about the island and was also very kind as well as knowledgeable.

Exciting, thrilling, dirty & dusty, a real bone shaker of a ride! Miguel our driver was informative & really good fun. We enjoyed the day immensely. Beautiful views.
