Laszlo and Estafanía are really nice people, they both know al lot about Gran Canaria. The tour is with a small group of people so you can ask enough questions about the places that you visit. We did two tours with Laszlo and Estafanía. One in which we drove to Some of the most beautifull places in Gran Canaria. The Other one we hiked more to beautifull places. If you like tours with a small group of people who know a lot about Gran Canaria we definitly recomend them. Liza and Jan
