What You Can Expect
After boarding an air-conditioned minivan at the Port of Las Palmas, you’ll travel to the quaint Gran Canarian village of Teror. Teror has remained virtually unchanged for centuries and offers an abundance of colonial architecture and charming churches. On a guided walking tour, you’ll see landmarks such as Basilica de la Virgen del Pino and learn of Teror’s religious heritage.
Then, return to your vehicle and travel to Bandama Caldera — a 4,000-year-old volcanic crater smothered in volcanic ash and native Gran Canaria flora. During time at leisure, capture photographs of the crater and revitalize with coffee at the neighboring golf course (own expense).
On the return journey to the Port of Las Palmas, you’ll stop at a local wine cellar to sample red and white wines accompanied by artisan cheese, and enrich your knowledge of Gran Canaria’s fertile vineyards.
Conclude your tour with drop-off at the Port of Las Palmas.
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.
This was truly a highlight of our recent cruise. I cannot say enough great things about this experience! Our guide treated us like family and we had such a wonderful time seeing things from an insider's point of view. This trip is not to be missed!
The sites were breathtaking and our guide was terrific!
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.
