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 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.
This trip is great value. Its quite a long day with a trip around the National Park then onto the wine region area. This has a little stop at the shop. You then go onto lunch which is a buffet, not included in the trip price but costs €10 and is very reasonable. The last part is the caves.... really great day. The caves are a teeny trek and there's a bit of 'ducking' but highly recommed to see a whistle-stop of Lanzarote. The guides are chirpy, informative and helpful. We really enjoyed the whole trip.
We booked the half day tour as we only wanted to see the southern part of the island on a tour but due to a lack of numbers owing to the pandemic we were combined with the full day tour. This meant that we had a lunch stop but after the visit to the winery we returned to our hotels with the full day tour completing the remainder of their tour. The communication before the tour was excellent and the tour itself was great, as we expected. Definitely worth the money.
A relly enjoyable excursion! Marta and Ruben are incredible guides who love what they do. Ruben provided a lot of interesting info about the island and the local fauna both in English and Spanish. The snorkeling part was extremely fun. We had the beach to ourselves and could swim and snorkel as long as we liked! On our way back to the port we had a bite to eat on the boat. Would deffenitely recommend it!
