Very nice experience. Simon, the guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He explained everything on the way about the island history, agriculture and traditions. We made quite a few stops to enjoy the stunning views. In my opinion there were long enough to take pictures and absorb the beauty of it as well. Had a lovely experience to the local market where we tasted the local nuts, cheeses and drink and you can also buy them at a decent price if you want a good quality product. Had lunch at a nice restaurant, but that was optional, if not you can explore the area for one hour. Last stop was the aloe vera plantation were the owner explained to us how they look after the plant and how they process it. We tested the products and had a choice to buy them as well. Some were pricey but not mandatory to buy. Overall it is a worthy experience. I recommend it 100% if you want to see the mountain side of the island. It is breathtaking

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

It was a really unique and special experience to hike by moonlight and to learn about the stars from an amazing viewpoint. Pablo is a great guide and made us feel very relaxed and also gave us some tasty local treats! We had a really magical time and would highly recommend this tour :)

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.

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