The guide was very clear in all languages he spoke. The trip offered what was advertised and more…. Once on the bus, you stayed on the bus with no changes at Los Christian’s etc. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and I learned much more about the island, even though I have been here many times. I am a solo traveller and felt very comfortable. Had time to explore all of the places visited. The restaurant suggested for lunch was reasonably priced, and although a simple meal (4 choices per course), I chose the fish which was delicious. There were plenty of opportunities to take photos or just relax and take in the wonderful places.

We hebben enorm genoten van onze excursie naar La Gomera dank zij onze zeer ervaren en sympathieke gids Basso. Naast een goede chauffeur zijnde, wist hij ons veel bij te brengen betreffend fauna, flora, vulkanen, plaatselijke gewoonten en nog zoveel meer van het eiland. Leerzaam en verrijkend en leuk op de ferry.
