What people are saying about Guatiza

It was a very nice and interesting trip to the César Manrique Foundation, the cactus garden tour and the Sunday market in Teguise. Our tour guide was unique, funny and competent and with heart and soul in the matter. She even explained everything in German to us, a couple of German participants, although that was not planned in the program. An absolutely recommendable tour!

Well worth the money, the Cesar Manrique Foundation is very informative about the man himself and the guide has a vast knowledge of the facts. The Cactus Gardens are beautiful and there are about 2000 different cacti. The view from the windmill is exceptional.

A great choice if you want to take advantage of Sunday for cultural visits.
