My wife and I went in this tour last week and can highly recommended it. The organisation and communication was first class. You get to experience amazing mountain views and see some small villages. There are regular stops for photo opportunities and a cafe break and lunch break. Pavel is a great guide who makes the tour fun, informative and welcoming to everyone on the tour. A special mention for Salvador who is a brilliant driver.

One of the most affordable and informative tours on the island! Pavel is knowledgeable and fun, making for a fantastic day out. It was clear he was tailoring the tour to the group- as there were no children present the info was slightly more 'grown up' which made for lots of laughs. Time in each location was fast, but we did not feel rushed. The highlight for us was definitely eating at the local restaurant in Fataga, beautiful food and stunning setting. Simply somewhere we would not have visited otherwise. For the price I can't believe how much we saw. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Gran Canaria.

The tour with Pawel (Paul, Pablo) was great. From Las Palmas to Maspalomas and back again. During the trip Pawel tells all sorts of interesting things about the history of the island. There are several stops during which photos can be taken and there is also the opportunity to eat a traditional meal in one of the small towns. Thank you for this busy day.
