    We went on the La Gomera tour as a part of our trip to Tenerife and found that it was really enjoyable. Marcel, our guide, was exemplary in speaking four languages and was more than happy to stop and talk to us individually at length about our interests. The lunch was good and varied, meaning that pickier members of the group were catered for. The views were absolutely superb and we were lucky to be in quite an empty coach. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone in or visiting Tenerife that wants to know more about La Gomera and its culture.

    Hi. The provoder no even speak english at all , only few numbers and words. When I ask him during the first stop ,why he speaking english very minimal he wasnt like it , a bit of root . Because of this reason , not really enjoyed the tour . On the bus has 2 couple from French and everybody from Germany , so he been talked in Deutch mostly . I has to ask the other traveller to translate for me . The microfon didnt work propaly , so no even can undertstand what he saying. The view was beautiful and then the organisation’s with a ticket and a bus pick up time was well . I will make the next trip with this office tour anywhere on my holiday.

    Very nice and well organized tour to La Gomera. The pickup time has been pushed back by 30 minutes. But that wasn't a problem, since you got a day's notice. You really drive around the whole island and with small breaks you can always admire nature for a short time. The longest breaks were 30 minutes, so not much for hiking. But it's enough for short walks. The transfer and the ferry ride worked very reliably. But you have to keep in mind that you are on the road from 8 a.m. to 6 or 7 p.m. The guide was friendly. Unfortunately not very easy to understand, neither in English nor in German. The information was nice but not very deep. There was even lunch. It was plentiful but you should like meat. But we were also asked before the start whether we were vegetarians and we said no. Considering the price, you can't complain here.
