What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"We were curious about the tradition. Watching the people was as interesting as the bulls. Very much a community event. All very friendly to outsiders. Glad we experienced it. "
★★★★★
"I'm not an adrenaline junky and I'm actually quite risk averse but this was a freaking blast. Such a fun way to see the island! Darcio took us on the east side route, where we went up to the dark forest and through the primordial cloud forest. Then we came down the north east side of Pico Alto and got a little (okay a lot) muddy on the farm roads. Splashes and puddles and jumps all available if you decide to go fast. Finished up the tour at Quinto de Azores for some gelato. Darcio is fun, knowledgeable about the cloud forest and the ecology of the island and he knows when to stop and take photos!"
★★★★★
