Was an amazing trip around whole island, 9-17pm, we had a lunch stop as well, we saw a lot of the beauty of Lanzarote. Nazaret, our guide, is such a lovely person, thank you! All passed super professional, from my booking to the end of the trip. Air-conditioned bus, spanish-english languages. I highly recommend this trip because you can see even La Graciosa from distant, was a surprise for me.

Very comfortable way to see Timanfaya National Park. Super Domingo was certainly super when navigating the very narrow volcano road! It's really easy to join the tour and we got to see all the highlights that we wanted. We didn't do the camel ride but it was fine to take photos from the car park

Very enjoyable. We didn’t see dolphins but it was a lovely evening despite this.

It was an amazing experience with a very funny guide man :) Thank you so much

Great diving point and professional staff, also friendly. Top experience
