Jowy took us on a "custom" tour, not his regular ones. The areas we explored were just what we were looking for, and we felt very well served. Jowy worked hard to ensure our needs were met and that we had a fantastic time.

My husband and I wanted to go to the Geopark but to a different location than where Joey normally takes his tours so I just reached out to him to ask if it was possible. He said, ‘Yes.’ And that was that. We all made it up as we went along with Joey pointing out our options. It was a rainy day and we were outside on trails so we needed to adjust. Joey was great. We got to see lots of columnar basalt which was our first priority. Then he took us on a trail to a beautiful hidden beach. There he really made a great impression as he helped us pick up plastic trash from this almost pristine setting. His caring for the environment made him a great guy in our books. We three carried our bags of trash back along the trail to the trash cans at the road. Jowy told us interesting stories of his other experiences in this park since he has lived in this area all his life. We had a wonderful day and would gladly do it again.

Jowy provided accurate directions on how to get to the pickup location and arrived on time. He made sure to keep us aware of what and where we were going every step of the trip. The location Jowy chose was isolated island that he was clearly experienced with and was attentive to slower members of our party. This made for an amazing hiking experience. As a bonus there was also time to grab a swim in the water. Overall this was an absolutely excellent experience we could not have completed on our own. 5-stars Jowy and the tour.
