The Grand tour is really a good deal to explore some wonders of Lanzarote. It is a long day trip but so worth it. All went smoothly, well organised and well explained in a variety of languages. A very international mix of Spanish, French, English and some other nationalities on this trip. Some parts of the itinerary might be argued (camel ride, wine tasting) but just be willing to "read" and enjoy the landscape. Only suggestion: maybe some more chances of photostopps.

A great experience! Vanessa, the local tour guide, was able to bring us closer to some great places in Lanzarote in just over 8 hours. Definitely recommended if you only have one day to visit. We did the tour with our 14 month old daughter. Everything works great with the front carrier, the pram was only on the bus downstairs because the stops were not suitable for prams.

Excellent organization, the guide was very nice and engaging, the program of visits top.

It was a great way to enjoy the day and see lots of things. Our guide Erich was funny.

Great day tour with a fantastic guide - highly recommend it
