Very nice and informative guide. We got to know the island as best we could in one day. Gomera is definitely worth a vacation of its own. Especially if you value the landscape. It is really very varied and fascinating. Good lunch break with delicious food and a demonstration of the whistling language "El Silbo". The ferry crossing was pleasant and well organized. We even saw a group of pilot whales on the way there. A recommended excursion. But you have to get up early to make the trip worthwhile.

The small park gives a good insight into the history of La Gomera. There is also a small souvenir shop with very friendly service and a restaurant. Those who have booked the menu with tasting will be served a small but very tasty regional snack by a very friendly waiter

Totally beautiful finca, with many large & small Gekos! The system is committed alone and / or in a group (family etc pp). An audio guide - also in German - will be provided. The food afterwards is great!

It was a very nice day. The guide was great, he was aware of each one of us at all times. He was cultured and witty. It was certainly a luxury to travel with him.

A sensational trip. Everything buttoned up to the last button. I recommend!
