This was my first visit to Gran Canaria, for number of reasons I decided to stay in the north (Las Palmas) and bought 2 (+1) tours around the island to get better idea of different regions and places of importance. All of the tours were amazing: small groups, the routes were planned with great detail and knowledge of the island, they well-balanced nature, towns/villages and museums (!); stops to enjoy sights, have coffee or lunch were adequate; and equally important: the guides were fantastic! I have trully enjoyed their talking on all kind of topics related to local history, fauna, flora, geology, archeology, customs, legends, social specifics related to current life incl. "covid times" and impact on tourims (seeing empty hotels in Maspalomas), and the like. Excellent.
The drivers were really nice and we managed to see loads of sites all over the island from the North to the South including Teror, Pico de las Nieves, Roque Nublo, Fanaga aloe vera farm and some other places in the mountains. It was quite hot on this particular day though. It's better to do this car ride in the mountains when it's a bit more cooler outside. I would stay longer in the Teror village, it had a real authentic feel to it with the Sunday market as well. We got about 40min there to look around.
Great day trip. Carlos our guide was so knowledgeable and wonderful company. A beautiful island with such amazing scenery. The trip was fab.
Very well organized, very knowledgeable guide, Marine, enough pictures time, a lot of interesting facts around gran canaria. I recommend.
