The tour was incredibly good, we can recommend it unreservedly! From the communication in advance to being dropped off in front of the hotel at the end, there is absolutely nothing to complain about. Many thanks to Kristina for the great and entertaining tour. She's not just a tour guide, she responds individually to all questions, to the fitness level of all participants (although we were a fit group) and she takes great photos of you that you can remember for a long time. Thank you very much ♥️

It was a very nice tour with beautiful views and interesting paths in the gorge and along the coast. Kristina brought in a lot of things that are typical of the country along the way and conveyed important legends in an interesting way. She was very attentive and her connection to the Kanarios was very noticeable. It is a highly recommended tour if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle.
