If you are based in Las Palmas or somewhere north, this tour is a great way to see top destinations in Gran Canaria. Pleased with the amount of time I had at each destination as well. It did not feel rushed.

Brilliant park. Animals are well cared for. Kids loved it. Would definitely recommend a visit. Only downside is there is no bus direct. Coat €30 each way in a taxi from playa del ingles.

I loved the tour, especially Puerto de Morgan. The town is beautiful. Barbara drives very well!

Great day trip with lots of information from a local.

A lot of animals, the local people are very helpful
