    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.

    All in all a very beautiful island, beautiful nature and vegetation. A very personable, experienced guide with many explanations for interested parties. Good organization except that we had to wait 20 minutes for pickup in the morning. Slight initial difficulties as the bus microphone had failed. But that could be fixed after about half an hour. Our guide spoke very good English, but there were always more detailed explanations in Spanish.

    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.
