What people are saying about Las Palmas

The tour was well organized and the guide named Victor was super friendly and helpful. Although the communication in English was sometimes a bit bumpy, everything worked out. Despite safety, there is always a risk of getting bruises or something similar, so if you are a bit sensitive, you should not participate. You also need a certain level of athleticism to manage the hiking well at the end. Also not recommended for people who are afraid of heights or quickly panic. What I also think is great is that the guide contacts you via WhatsApp in advance, so you can clarify all important questions and he also drove to a shop with us so that you could buy suitable shoes for the tour (about 12€ ). All in all it was a very good, adventurous and interesting experience.

I was with my 11 years old who actually can ride but myself I was first time on a horse. I was super nervous and borderline scared to death but instructors were great and the whole thing was very suitable for a novice like myself. For more advanced riders it was probably a bit dull but they got to do some trott and gallop still so different skill levels were taken into account. Nice views, good instructions, felt safe despite my fears, perfect few hours overall.

The guides at the top, super nice and a very very good atmosphere, it was a GREAT moment. The landscape is very pretty, the river is a bit narrow but very nice to cross, natural slides and abseiling galore, and all that always in a good mood thanks to the great guides! I highly recommend the activity!

Was a great experience all around, Pick up from and to the hotel was great and was really worth the money, guides were very friendly, and the animals were well taken care of. It was a great way to get to see an area of Gran Canaria away from the resorts, and to try a new experience. Would do again!

I definitely recommend this trip, for both experienced and inexperienced riders. The ride itself gives you incredible views, the horses are well looked after, and the people are very friendly.
