Le guide a eu la gentillesse d'attendre notre groupe de 3 personnes sur 6, alors que nous avions 30 minutes de retard. Ensuite il a été prévenant, professionnel, et toujours sympathique.

Fun and informative! Vincent did the whole tour in English (for me) and French (for the other participants) and he did a great job in keeping us all engaged. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Très belle expérience dans les tunnels de lave. Arthur est très sympathique et nous a fait part de son expérience et ses connaissances, ce qui a rendu l’activité encore plus agréable. Je recommande.

Je vous recommande vivement cette expérience, Vincent a su prendre le temps de personnaliser les visites selon notre condition physique ce qui est appréciable. C’est un guide prévenant et un bout en train qui vous fera rigoler et vous mettra à l’aise dès le début. Super pour la cohésion du groupe. Photos prises par lui et rafraîchissement offert à la fin. 5 étoiles sont trop peu. Je recommande à 1000000%
