Unfortunately we didn't visit the rum factory, but everything else was perfect. We went with the manual wheelchair (collapsible), suitable for wheelchair equipment Another travel guide told us that small minibuses (one behind the other) run. But that wasn't the case here, just German and English, more languages wouldn't be great. The tour guide and bus driver were great and helpful. We enjoyed the ride, thank you.

Although advertised as German: everything also in English.

Tour Guide: top Guide !, but unfortunately has to lead the tour in English. Speaks a lot, clearly, and everything literally in both languages and with a clean switch to the other language. Tour: would be interesting. Chauffeur: is great. Bus / Car: OK, has tinted windows. Engine problems on part of the tour. Recommendation: only conditionally recommended because of the two languages. General: During 10 days in Gran Canaria (Playa del Ingles) I booked 7 tours in advance with GetYourGuide. The pick-up times on the voucher were not correct and I had to try to find the right times (and pick-up locations) myself for all tours and have them confirmed for me (bookings with GetYourGuide are great and easy). I did a total of 3 island tours, combined that would make about a serious tour. If you only have moderate demands, look for a good German-speaking tour guide (e.g. this one!) On site and have the most beautiful places shown in a taxi or minibus.

Very nice trip, with many nice experiences, but a bit tiring with the exchange between German and English. There was some double information and a lot of noise. A short time at the Rome Distillation Factory - we were a very large English group and we had poor time in the shop.
