This tour was fine, but I expected more of it. The only thing we did in Telde and Arucas was visiting its two churches and rhum factory. We did not explore any other corners by foot... we only got very limited time to do a quick stroll by ourselves, without any directions. Then we drove off north into the mountains, with lots of beautiful sightings, but unfortunately we did not get off the bus very often, so there were not many photo opportunities.

At noon we stopped for the optional lunch in a local restaurant, but there was not really an option not to join. You could not stay on the bus and outside there was nothing to see/do. Price was only 11 euros per person for 3 courses and free water/wine, but in my opinion the food quality was poor. It was also unpleasantly cold inside the restaurant, even while sitting next to a heating module.

Apart from all this, the guide was friendly/interesting and the bus was clean and comfortable. What was a bit of a let-down to this aspect was that we had a mixed group of English speaking and German speaking participants, so each often long story was told in both languages, resulting in only very few silent moments being left. The guide did his absolute best, but since he was not a native speaker I sometimes had difficulties understanding what he was saying.

Also, the pick-up and drop-off were not at my hotel as was promised when booking, but at another hotel about 5-10 minutes walking from mine. I got informed to this later on via e-mail. For me personally this was not a problem, but I would have liked that risk to be mentioned on beforehand.

The rhum factory visit was included without charge, just as mentioned. It started off with brief inside tour by one of its employees, this times with split groups for English and German. Great relief! The tour was nice, but it was a little short. I was more like a quick run-through, while I expected more historical information and more details about the destilation process. Afterwards there was an unlimited free tasting of liquors, gin and rhum... except for the one rhum the factory guide had been talking about most, which was only available for 5 euros per shot.

As we spent most of our holiday on the beach, it was nice to be able to get a tour that covered most of the essentials in land. It did exactly what it promised: shown us all the highlights of the island - excluding beaches which was just fine - with just sufficient time to capture the essence of each spot. Never got bored, got a basic but nice lunch somewhere in the middle and the tour guide was one serious character: funny and informative with time to answer individual questions too. The only flaw I would point out is that the English guiding was a bit less rich than the German or Spanish. But still, very happy!!
Glad we went on this tour and I do recommend it!!
