It’s a nice way to visit La Gomera in one day and the time is worth it. But the organizational side is a bit poor, so frankly it should be around 3,5 stars. First I booked trip for Thursday, got time and pickup place conformation, but when we came (15 min uphil walk from out hotel) it was some mistake and they did not even have trips to La Gomera on Thursday, so they changed our trip for Saturday. But we needed to replan the day and come back to hetel by foot. Then on Saturday, they picked us up on 6:15, and the ferry was on 9:30, the ride is around 1 hour, and all the other times (2h+) is just waiting for other buses, changing the bus, picking up other people, etc. So a lot of wasted time and missed breakfast just because of poor logistics. The trip itself is fast-paced, just stop for a photo or 20-45 min in more interesting places. One more thing - the bus had the dirtiest windows I’ve seen, which for the sightseeing trip where you mostly watch from the bus is poor. Lunch was okish.

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.

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.

I liked the tour very much, a fantastic guide and a driver of 10. It is a very interesting island and worth visiting and getting to know.

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