What people are saying about Las Palmas

One of the best tours we ever went on, it's definitely a must do! It was perfectly organised so the time was used well and got to see a lot of things. Pavel is very knowledgeable and passionate about Gran Canaria, so he explained a lot of things, from history, culture, food to fauna and flora of the different areas, with so much energy and positivity! We suggest doing the tour at the beginning of your holiday, as he recommended a lot of places we could go to later on our own. However, the places on the tour are not accessible by bus, so this was a great opportunity to see the most beautiful part of the island. I could write for ages about all the beautiful places we saw, how much we learned, how well it was organised and how smooth the driver drove. We fully recommend to take this tour, and can also spend more time at the end at the dunes (have a swim, go to the Mirador) and return by bus 30. Would give 10 starts if I could!

Very nice and funny guide. You can tell that doing these tours is his passion. Always my pleasure. Even with questions, he usually has an answer and is not annoyed. The beach is beautiful and the villa very very interesting. One of the best half day excursions you can do. LG Strike one :-)

Cofete landscape and beach are beautiful and absolutely worth seeing, the history of Villa Winter is interesting and surprising, and the super relaxed and funny tour guide rounds off the trip. Awesome experience!

Amazing experience . One of the best beaches I have ever seen . Breathtaking landscapes . Mysterious winter house and a very passionate story telling guide . A must do in Fuerteventura
