Even though we were only two guests on that day, David took us on the tour around Rodalquilar. We learned a lot about the volcanic history of the area, and about the mines and the gold mining process in the 20th century, as well as some interesting bits about the local flora and fauna. We always enjoy being guided around... More

We went on two half-day tours with David, and they were brilliant. Not only is he an expert geologist, but also an excellent teacher. I learnt so much about the volcanic history of the area, including earth movements and even coral reefs. (I'm also interested in bird-watching, and he's also an expert on birds, plants and wildlife in general. It... More

We joined David for a 4-wheel drive tour of the volcanoes and wetlands of the Cabo de Gata. We were a very mixed group by age (10-73), but we all got something out of it. For me, one of the highlights was seeing the flamingo´s, whereas for the older members of the group, it was the fantastic views and the... More

I booked the tour having read the reviews on trip advisor. The four hours were well paced and the time was filled with alot of interesting facts and sights. Firstly, David speaks excellent English. He even understands the english sense of humour. Our tour comprised of my husband two daughters aged 16 and 20 and a 20 year old male... More

We joined David for the Volcano Adventure walking tour and had a terrific time. Our 3 kids, aged 13, 12 and 8 all loved it. David is tremendously knowledgeable about both the geology but also the flora and fauna of the area. More importantly he is able to share that knowledge in a way that engages you, makes you think,...

David was a wonderful guide. We would never have been brave enough on our own to reach the beaches he took us to. He made the trip come alive with both his geological knowledge, and his familiarity with the history and wild life of the area. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Gabo de Gata.

David was very accommodating and arranged a last minute tour of the volcano crator highlighting the garnets which we had really wanted to see. David explained the whys and wherefore's of the volcano and garnets in an informative and interesting way. I have strongly recommend this tour. Ps it must have been good because submitting this review was pain full!!

David organised a wonderful day out in Cabo de Gata Natural Park. The main focus, as agreed in advance, was geology and he fulfilled this admirably, but in addition he is so knowledgeable about the area, its birds, plants, wildlife etc that we all got much more from the trip. We had a moderate walk in the morning with numerous... More

We had a great time with David during our week trekking at the beginning of March. He was very professional and knowledgeable and went beyond what was necessary to make us feel welcome. We could have gone to Cabo de Gata without a guide. Had we done so, however, we would not have been able to have the same experience.... More
