Quaint mountain villages sloping on hillsides, views of ancient rocks, hair pin switchback turns, walking the top of an extinct volcano cauldera, taking views of the top of the island while swimmers soak in a hot tub right there; these are all experiences of our tour. Our tour guide was superb. There were only 16 of us and that was perfect. I personally would never drive such a treacherous road so it was a pleasure to ride in our bus with a very safe careful driver. The only drawback to this tour is that we booked it ahead of time with VIATOR and we paid 10 Euros extra each because of that. People who booked it there paid 10 Euros less. That doesn't seem fair so I will NOT book with viator in the future.
The tour was quite interesting. We saw the most important natural sights on Gran Canaria, including Pico de las Nieves and Roque Nublo. Our guide was very kind, friendly and knowledgeable. However, the itinerary should be regularly updated. We had visited the town of Teror by ourselves the day before, and then again on this tour it wasn't mentioned anywhere in the travel itinerary. In addition, the title of the trip is GC peaks with lunch, while the lunch wasn't included. The trip effectively lasted about 6 hours. There were too many shopping stops and too many direct calls to buy various goods. All in all, I wouldn't recommend it at this price and with the current itinerary.
We had a great experience! The tour guides were very accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. We visited all the sites mentioned and had a fair amount of time to explore on our own in some parts. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a stress-free tour of some of the most beautiful places in Gran Canaria. By the way, the lunch provided was delicious!
The tour was really nice, not difficult, almost without walking. It took us to the mountains of GC where we made various stops and also to villages of San Mateo, Valleseco, and Teror, and to Parador De Cruz De Tejeda. The guide was friendly and didn't rush us or at least it didn't feel that way. Lunch was good too.
Wir waren begeistert.
Pünktlich wurden wir am Hotel abgeholt und schon ging es los. Unterwegs bekamen wir schon jede Menge Erklärungen. Wir wurden sehr gut mit Informationen versorgt. Die Zeit, die wir bei den Stopps hatten war sehr gut bemessen. Wichtig ist übrigens eine Jacke. Teilweise war es doch etwas frischer als in Las Palmas. Wir waren nur 3 Teilnehmer. Daher konnte Franz auf unsere Wünsche eingehen.
Es gab auch ein fantastisches, landestypisches Mittagessen. Danke Franz für diesen schönen Tag.
