With guide Filipe we visited this magnificent place where the Zino petrel return to their nests at night. The mysteries sounds, birds flying by in the moonlight, it was an experience never to forget. Filipe has a lot of knowledge, not only about birds.

Except for a technical fault with the transport, the locations to find the endemic birds were good, and the time went to quickly, would recommend taking a full day to cover more species, hope to return soon for the sea birds.

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.
