We liked the access to the Green Caves and Jameos del Agua, because we have the privilege of being the first and having the places just for us! Then we went to another viewpoint (not mirador del rio) because the sky was very overcast. Thus, we were able to admire the island of Graciosa. Around noon, we ate in a buffet restaurant at altitude, all you can eat for €12, very good. We also had the option of bringing our own picnic. In the afternoon, we went to explore the Geria region, and stopped at a vineyard to taste. We then left for a camel ride. (Additionally, 11€/person for 30 min. It was very nice. For those who didn't want to ride a camel, there was a museum to visit. Then, we visited the Timanfaya national park, it was incredible! I recommend. Thank you very much to our guide Andrea who was perfect! Congratulations also to the driver!

The downside - our pickup from Playa Blanca was 15 mins late. The coach you are picked up on is just a shuttle taking you to Yaiza where you swap coaches. Our trip coach had originally picked up people from Puerto Del Carmen. They had been told they could reserve their seats by leaving something on them. Well this didn't work because there was nearly a full on fight between those from Puerto and those from Playa over whose seats were whose. Maybe the trip organisers should stop this seat reserving to avoid this happening again! The good - great to see Timyanfira National Park and the tiny white crabs of Jameos Del Aguas. TIP: sit on the right side of the coach for the best views!

Good itinerary. Radmila an excellent guide. I'm not interested in wine tasting or camels and this is the only tour I could find that avoids both. Annoying to pay 1 euro to use the toilet at Yaiza stop; organisers should negotiate with the cafe to avoid that.

the trip is totallx worth it. you will see the most interesting and impressive sites of lanzarote. our driver manolo was the best.

Great guide and very safe driver. Enough time at each stop, very well balanced trip
