A must do if you want to really explore the island

It's a great opportunity to see everything in a day, and also have some really cool experiences such as riding a camel on a traditional farmer seat or tasting traditional wine. However, the tour itself is a little bit hasty. At the volcano restaurant (The Devil), we were not allowed to stick around enough to enjoy a meal, as opposed to the short trip. We did stop at an all-you-can-eat restaurant on our way to Jameos del Agua, which had pretty good food. The guide had a lot of interesting facts to share all the time on the bus, but the sound quality was not great. The guide was also very careful not to leave anyone behind (we stayed behind a couple of times to take more pictures, as we couldn't get enough due to time pressure. The bus ride through the volcanoes was extremely impressive! And so were the heat and gazer experiments we were shown on the top of the volcano. Jameos del Agua was the highlight of this trip in my opinion, and I would do it again just to revisit it! Cool overall!

Three stars would be true reflection of this tour.

We arrived at the camel park, we did not wish to ride them, we were not told by the guide that there was a restaurant and toilets there, these were not in plain site from the coach park, we were not told we would be there something like an hour, . Timanfaya National Park, we saw the demonstrations, the guide tried to rush the group back to the coach, more time there would have been good. We were then taken back to Restaurant El Campo, where we stopped for coffee and to pick people up who had come from Playa Blanca, not the village location we were told online, Mancha Blanca, where the famous church is, one of the main reasons we chose this tour. 8 euros for buffet lunch with wine and water. We didn't want this, so we paid 15.50 euros for 2 coffeeS, 2 rolls, 2 bags of crisp RIP OFF. Our coach had gone to pick up school children! We went to Mancha Blanca, again rushed back to coach! onward to another café, with a good view, The caves were spectacular, a long day!! Did not like guide!!!!

Great value, excellent guide, saw most of the island.

This is not a tour to actually walk around the volcanoes (you need to book a “hike around the volcano” tour for that) but gives a good background knowledge of them. The demonstrations of the heat from the trapped magma were amazing and educational. Going around the lava beds and volcanoes by coach was a fantastic incite showing the different formations caused by lava and gas which had come from the volcanoes during their eruptions in the 1730s. The vineyard part of the tour was good for wine lovers as you get to try some local wines and the way they grow the vines is very ingenious. Finally the Jameos del Agua was unbelievable. How someone can see a cave that was once full of the locals rubbish, and then create a wonderful place to eat and provide a great venue for parties and weddings was incredible, and the bonus of an auditorium with its great acoustics - outstanding.

A great day trip lots to see and a Very good guide

Really enjoyed the day. Very interesting lots of good information from the guide. Plenty of stops for refreshments etc. I have a gluten free diet and the restaurant on our lunch stop provided an excellent meal. The guide was one of the best we have encountered, nothing was to much trouble for him. My husband and I have booked 2 further trips with this company, I highly recommend this company. I give this trip 5 stars

Excellent tour of César Manrique’s key sites

We really enjoyed the opportunity to hear about Manrique from our tour guide Giron. We got plenty of time at each stop to really appreciate what Manrique was trying to achieve. He was clearly a man ahead of his time. I would recommend this tour to art/environment lovers, but also to anyone who is interested in what can be achieved if you have real vision and a belief in making that vision reality.
