This was my first visit to Gran Canaria, for number of reasons I decided to stay in the north (Las Palmas) and bought 2 tours (+1 more based on my satisfaction) 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 and the like. Excellent.
The excursion that was provided by Five Star Boats was amazing. Staff were super friendly and accomadting. However there is a communication problem on the website, i think you need to update the itinary as we paid for the VIP package and due to COVID the boat weren't able to provide towels but obviously its advertised on the website. A few other things that were avertised that didn't happen were the snorking and food was provided but on the website also advertised as a buffet. I understand all the changes were made due to COVID however I think you should make the customers aware of this before they buy without getting the full package. Otherall the excusion was throughly enjoyable and relaxing and was amazing regards.
Really good tour: very lively and filled with lots of interesting facts and stories. And the views! Omg, the views are stunning. We've had a lot of stops for pictures - which was really great. I felt like we were a bunch of friends travelling rather than a tour group. The guide, Francisco, was really friendly and very knowledgeable. If you want to see the north and central part of the island then this hassle free experience is the best for it. Highly recommend.
The first dives were off the beach near the dive shop (primarily because I did not dive for a while). We saw more marine life than I expected which was nice (many various fish including a ray, clams). There were also a few interesting rock formations like arches and small caves. Vesko, the guide, was excellent. Very patient, thorough, and helpful. The logistics were great. Pickup, equipment, safety, etc. Everything was also well sanitized (COVID-19 days).
This tour was great, I highly recommend it. Our hotel was on the south of Fuerteventura and it was a bit longer travel to get to Lanzarote and back (the driver picked us up around 5:45 am and we arrived back to hotel around 7:30 pm), but it was really worth it. The excursion was very nice planned, at every stop we had enough time to explore and make some nice pictures and videos. We really enjoyed this tour.
