What You Can Expect

Las Palmas Shore Excursion: Private Volcanic Caldera, Teror Village and Wine-Tasting Tour

Taste great Gran Canarian wine on this full-day shore excursion!

Leave the Port of Las Palmas by air-conditioned minivan, and travel out of the city to the traditional Canarian village of Teror, some 14 miles (22km) from Las Palmas. Almost unchanged for centuries, the charming village is home to colonial architecture, markets and history-rich churches. On a walking tour, learn how Teror is recognized as a place of Christian pilgrimage, and see the famous Baroque church — Basilica de la Virgen del Pino — built to celebrate the Virgin Mary, who locals refer to as 'our lady of the pines.'

In the afternoon, hit the highway and travel to Bandama Caldera. The 4,000-year-old volcanic crater measures some 656-feet 200-meters deep and is covered in volcanic ash as well some interesting species of Gran Canaria plants. Enjoy some free time to take photos of the impressive natural feature and maybe enjoy a coffee at a nearby golf course.

Before returning to the Port of Las Palmas, call in at a local wine cellar near the caldera. Enjoy a tasting of local red and white wine alongside a selection of artisan cheese. After learning about wine production in Gran Canaria and the mineral-rich volcanic soil, return to your minivan, and then finish you day with a drop-off at the port.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2016

We had a fantastic day with an excellent driver/guide in Frank who looked after us so well. Seven in our family group in a mini bus. Just the right amount of information and plenty of stops for photos and refreshments. Certainly the best trip we have had in a long while. We chose this instead of one offered by the cruise line and were so glad that we had! Frank went out of his way to ensure we had a great day. I have been in the Travel business for 40 years and would have jumped at the chance of having Frank on my payroll. Excellent in every way. Thanks very much.

Our guide, Fran, provided an outstanding tour. Despite the fact that it was a bank holiday and many places were closed, he found wonderful alternatives for us. He was extremely knowledgeable. Although his accent was sometimes hard to understand, he would patiently repeat the information until we all understood his explanations.

Bruno and Frans were FANTASTIC tour guides! They had a vast amount of historical knowledge of Gran Canaria and all of the villages we visited. They are incredibly inviting and create a comfortable fun-filled environment. We tasted local food and drink from each place at no cost and without fail, were impressed by the beauty of everything we saw.
