It was a very nice and interesting trip to the César Manrique Foundation, the cactus garden tour and the Sunday market in Teguise. Our tour guide was unique, funny and competent and with heart and soul in the matter. She even explained everything in German to us, a couple of German participants, although that was not planned in the program. An absolutely recommendable tour!

Great tour and good value for money! Very informative and learnt a lot. Pick up was well organised and the tour guide was friendly and helpful. Like some of the other reviews say it is a quick tour but that’s exactly what we wanted! Highly recommend for half a day out visiting the wonderful Timanfaya National Park.

Very interesting tour especially because it is the only way to enter into the park and travel between the vulcans. You can’t go on car o by walk but only on bus from tour operators

Great trip, super organised tour guide and absolutely amazing coach driver she was unbelievable. Short South Island tour great value.

It has been one of the best experiences of my life. The guides have taken care of us to the last second. 100% recommended
