We chose this tour because of past reviews and itinerary. We were not disappointed. Jose Santos from Carpe Diem dream tours was there to meet us as soon as we got off the ship. On the way out of the city, he was already sharing a lot about the city and it's architecture. The weather was perfect and we got to see everything on the tour and we were never rushed at all. Jose gave us plenty of time to see the sights and take all the pictures we wanted. We were even able to customize the tour to include a stop at a local restaurant for lunch. How fun! We highly recommend Carpe Diem tours with Jose. You will be glad you booked this tour. We were dropped off back at our dock with plenty of time to make the all aboard.

We decided not to use the ship's services and booked with Carp Diem Tours for a 4x4 trip and Joseph was our guide. We were driven around the valley floor, we also tried to see the lakes from up high but the mist came in. Joseph also drove us around the top of the volcano which was very exciting. We went to Kings Point where we had magnificent views of the blue and green lakes and Silence Bay. We would thoroughly recommend Carp Diem Tours. Joseph was very knowledgeable and courteous. He even provided us with a cup of coffee and some delicious biscuits. We did this trip in January this year and have been travelling since so apologies for lateness in getting this review in.

Our Viator tour with Jose of Carpe Diem Dream Tours was the best. The island is small but packed with extraordinary natural history and beauty. Fortunately Jose was able to bring it to life and in 4 hours introduced us to the Western side of the island. You will not be disappointed.
