Wonderful day !!! Everything was very well organized, pick up and return from the hotel. Super friendly French-speaking guide with very good advice for visits and also for lunch restaurants. Very good exchange with the agency, I wanted to change the day for the excursion, they were very responsive and it was done without any worries!!! I strongly recommend collaborating with getyourguide!!

A good excursion to visit the main attractions of Fuertaventura! The transfer went very well at the scheduled time the ferry is very comfortable as well as the bus to go to the different sites. Our guide spoke French which allowed us to learn more about the Canary Islands! I recommend this excursion which we enjoyed very much.

Great tour to see a bit of Fuerteventura in a day! Transport door to door, friendly guides and plenty of time to explore the areas on your own. We received info about the island and places visited on the bus while some recommendations were given at the locations.

It was very beautiful. A great experience. However, a long day. A lot was told and explained about the volcanoes of the island and Lanzarote.

Highly recommended. Food amazing, Sergio and Nathan brilliant hosts.
