    It really was a great day and excellent value. We saw most of the island and the lunch was plentiful with wine. Our guide was a little hard to understand at times - but she did speak four languages. We would highly recommend this tour. It is so amazing to see a forest on the Canary Islands.

    Journey is primarily a bus tour with occasional stops but this is worth it with the amount of the island you need to see in order to experience the various aspects. Tour guide was clear with multilingual communication and the lunch was very enjoyable with a good 3 course meal including water and wine. Very enjoyable trip.

    The trip was well planned sometimes little free time but ok. The food at noon is anything but a kind of bbq, but everything is just well done and dry. Drink was alright. The guide's language skills are very poor and the tone in which she spoke worked everyone's nerves against k,enters. Her explanation was only intelligible in Spanish French English German terrible and incomprehensible!
