  • Excellent tour with knowledgeable English-speaking driver. Well worth the cost.

  • We had a brilliant day out, the guide was excellent, would definitely recommend this trip.

  • 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.

  • Excellent guide! Awful weather that day, but saved by guide's efforts to make it worthwhile.

  • 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.
