    A fantastic nature, completely different from Tenerife. Unfortunately, with a guide who failed to convey his obvious enthusiasm in an understandable language. As soon as he got the microphone to his mouth, his otherwise excellent English turned into a totally incomprehensible, bad parody of the world's most life-weary stewardess English.

    Overall, I thought the trip was great. The ferry crossing in particular was awesome. Support (tour guide) informed us about everything and was very careful not to forget anyone ... A praise also to the driving skills of the bus driver, with the sometimes really tight corners .. Great .;)

    Was a good tour to see a beautiful island. Would recommend the tour company do the tour in 1 language, 2 if needed and reduce the amount said though. It was non-stop narration the whole bus ride. Food was pretty good and good photo spots. Would also recommend the tour stay longer at the first two photo stops, and add a few stops on the other side of the island as there were beautiful rock formations we drove past. Tour company didn't answer any emails, I live right beside Los Cristianos harbour and would've gotten picked up or met the tour at the ferry if they replied. Since they didn't I had to taxi across the south of the island at 7am to catch the bus at their meeting point to make sure I made the trip. I found humour in this but it's definitely a flaw. All in all, if you go on this tour you'll enjoy Gomera and the guide was nice, but I would definitely try another company if I was recommending this to a friend.
