We have just had a half day with Felipe and he is an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable and we saw the island's endemic bids really well, as he took us to such good sites. Much recommended.

I had a half-day tour with Birds and Company. No meals were involved. Your question refers more to hotel accommodation than a nature excursion.

We paid just 35 Euros each for the two of us for a half day trip - a bargain. Enquire directly to the company via their website as they don't run the trip every day of the week.
