Great Tour Company

We used this company twice during our stay, once for the Villages of the West Tour and again for the walk out on the pennisula. Easy to book with, reasonable rates, well timed, friendly staff. Generally good solid firm. The mini bus was a little uncomfortable, they could do with removing a row of seats. I'm only 5.6 and my legs were squashed in. They let my husband sit up front as he is 6.2. Not that relevant for the hike/walks as you are being taken there and back only but on the all day tour where you spend more time in the bus it is a more relevant comment. That aside we would have booked more tours if they had availibility and would recommend.
Great walk with great views

My wife and I took this walk in October 2019 - the weather was great, warm - actually, very warm - and sunny. There are many viewpoints along the walk, so if you are a fan of coastline, rocks and desert-looking landscape, this is a trip for you. Of course the landscape is green in spring, which makes it look like Cornwall in the UK (I assume). The dry autumn look is, however, also appealing. The trail is about 8 km long but can get a bit longer if you desire to take a look at the highest top from where you have to walk back to the "oasis" bar. During summer, the temperature can make this walk very difficult cause of the temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius - there is nowhere to hide from the sun on the way. o not forget sun protection if you get sunburnt easily. :)
