Full description
Your first stop after getting off the ferry Fred Olsen is San Sebastián de La Gomera: capital of the island. From there you will ascend up to the mountains and to the viewpoint of Mirador de las Carboneras and the scenery of the Hermigua Valley. In the village of Hermigua you will visit a Gofio Windmill, where you can see typical flora and learn about the gastronomy of the Canary Islands. Then you will continue to the small village of Las Rosas, where you will make a stop to enjoy a typical canarian lunch and a live demonstration of the only whistled language in the world, declared Immaterial World Heritage by UNESCO: el "Silbo Gomero". After a dessert and, if you wish, a coffee, you will ascend to Garajonay National Park. You will discover Laguna Grande and its great surrounding environment. On the way to return to San Sebastián you will also admire the famous Degollada de Peraza: a volcanic and impressive viewpoint. In San Sebastián you will have some free time to visit La Torre del Conde (The Count's Tower), La Casa de Colón (Christopher Columbus’ House), the Asunción Church, and simply stroll around the capital, before returning to Tenerife by ferry. This tour requires identity documents, otherwise the access to the ferry could be denied.

    Accually the Organisation was Perfect. Very interesting excursion in three languages. It was gorgeous. The only thing - we did not visit Windmill where they do gofio as it was promised. And as for me made too little stops and had only 30 min in the capital to visit all the places connected with Columbus. We looked for it ourselves (thanks google maps) as the group went to have ice cream. But we managed to see wonderful nature of the island and had perfect lunch. For those who has problems on ships , it is better to take paper bags and sit in the front. The vases are very strong. I felt very sick.

    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.

    Well worth the effort. For lunch there was also a vegetarian option. Consisting of soup in advance, lasagna and a dessert. You mainly sit on the bus, but the tour guide could tell interesting about the history and the environment, plants etc. Enough time for taking photos. We took the ferry from 17 30 back, so it can be useful to bring something to eat for the evening.
