What people are saying about Las Palmas

It was a really unique and special experience to hike by moonlight and to learn about the stars from an amazing viewpoint. Pablo is a great guide and made us feel very relaxed and also gave us some tasty local treats! We had a really magical time and would highly recommend this tour :)

Empfehlenswerter Ausflug, um Gran Canaria jenseits der Küste kennenzulernen. Verschiedene Stopps auf dem Weg zu den höchsten Punkten der Insel. Aussicht auf tiefe Täler und Schluchten. Auf dem Rückweg Aufenthalt in Teror, einem der hübschesten Orte auf der Insel.

Me encantó este lugar!! Fueron muy amables y se aseguraron de que estuviéramos súper cómodos. Definitivamente regresaré :)) Ah, y no puedo olvidar las galletas que nos dieron al final!

The experience was amazing! We couldn’t believe the amount of fish that were so close to the beach. The guide was really good too. 100% recommend!

A great experience. Anjellica was amazing and hey hospitality was amazing.
