Superb experience! Very pleasant to get out of the tourist beaches to find yourself in the middle of nature for a day. Visit of villages, panoramas, tasting of local products, hike accessible to everyone (Roque Nublo) and sunset at the Pic de las Nieves to end the day. The Marina guide is fascinating and passionate! Thanks to her I was able to learn about the Canary Islands, the biodiversity and the local culture. The excursions are made in small groups of maximum eight people, this is pleasant and allows a more personalized experience! Possibility of climbing at the end of the day, a unique experience! Thank you Marina! I recommend

We enjoyed the tour very much! Our guide was Selena and driver Alejandro. Absolutely reccomend. Only thing to note is that Roque Nublo will be seen from a distance, instead of actually hiking to it.

Excellent guiding by Selene made the trip memorable and enjoyable - she was enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. A great tour around the mountains and pretty villages. Highly recommended.

Great guide Francisco who was very friendly and told us a lot about Gran Canaria. Very interesting tour! On another tour tomorrow to the North!

The guide and driver were great. The weather wasn't good to us but the tour was adapted to get the best from the area.
