we had a fantastic guided tour to the centre of Gran Canaria. Relaxed, small group and air conditioned vehicle with some downtime to stop for coffee and lunch. Very enjoyable and the guide spoke perfect English, would highly recommend this tour if you love the nature and want to get away from the coast

Seen a lot of sights in one day, good explanations about the history of places along the way and enough time on site to take a look at the essentials in peace. Highly recommended for people who want to see as much of Gran Canaria's inland highlights as possible in one day.

Empfehlenswerter Ausflug, um Gran Canaria jenseits der Küste kennenzulernen. Verschiedene Stopps auf dem Weg zu den höchsten Punkten der Insel. Aussicht auf tiefe Täler und Schluchten. Auf dem Rückweg Aufenthalt in Teror, einem der hübschesten Orte auf der Insel.

Fran, the guide was friendly, helpful, informative and fun. I liked how we were taken to very different and beautiful places. We got a lot packed into this tour but it did not feel too rushed. It was managed very well by the driver and guide.

A great experience. Anjellica was amazing and hey hospitality was amazing.
