    This tour was exactly as sold. If you can put up with the big bus of people and quick stops, it is really great. The guide, Antonio, was great and I enjoyed listening to the 3 languages. The lunch (with wine, no coffee) was perfect. Overall, the tour is a great value and perfect was to get a quick taste of La Gomera. Getting on and off the ferries takes a bit of patience, but was fine.

    Overall excellent. Pick up bang on time, guide introduced herself & was with us at all times, she got the boarding passes to allow us onto the ferry where there was plenty of time to buy breakfast/ refreshments. Onto a bus for the tour with multilingual commentary . Great stops for photos on the way to the national park where dinner was served & the whistling demonstrated which was also excellent. Lunch was lovely & plenty of it. Some free time after lunch for a quick explore then back on the bus. Another stop at another part of the national park with free time to explore. Then the bus back to San Sebastian via lots if stunning landscapes. Free time in San Sebastian to explore then onto the ferry & back to Tenerife. There we got a bus back to our puck up point. All round an excellent full day tour. Would strongly recommend.

    This is a coach tour not a minibus (which I was expecting for the price). The boat trip is enclosed in airline seats - no admiring the view. La Gomera is absolutely stunning though. Our guide spoke for ages in Spanish before changing to English. Some of the passengers got impatient with this and the guide (2 Feb tour) totally and inappropriately lost the plot with them. I have never seen such a loss of temper from a guide on a tour. Totally bizarre and it coloured the rest of the day.
