    Our trilingual tour guide Marcel almost provided us with a lot of information about La Gomera. In his enthusiastic and fluent way of speaking, however, he does not have complete control over the use of the microphone - hence "only" 4 stars. He couldn't always be understood, although you could hear him talking... As I said, everything was presented fluently in Spanish, English and German, some information came twice or three times (keyword: Gioffio). José - the driver - was really great. Coped very well with his 58 seater on the difficult roads there. All in all an informative and entertaining affair. Food was good and local. Especially plenty.

    First of all, go by the local providers meeting location and time. Get Your Guide messed up 2 trips for us with their incorrect information. Local guide will contact you at least 1 day prior to trip. Expect the trip to be at least 10 hours long depending on your pick up location. We spent over 2 hours on the bus just picking up people from hotels. We were close to first on and then almost last off. Tour guide fluent in Spanish, English and French but heavy accent made it difficult to understand. Great 3 course lunch with wine included and several restroom stops. Enjoyable day and beautiful scenery but as passengers were very concerned passing other buses on narrow mountain roads tour guide just drones on.

    Absolutely beautiful island! the trip is done by bus which allows you to see a lot of different landscapes on La Gomera, be careful for those who would like to explore or are on the move. the restaurant was very very good and typical! Small flat; Be careful not to lose the 1zr guide in Tenerife, he tends to disappear and does not speak French well, so very few indications. the 2nd on the other hand speaks fluently and very well.
