Overview

Enjoy a day of culture, history and volcanic landmarks on a private, full-day shore excursion. When docked at the Port of Las Palmas, follow a local guide around the beautiful town of Teror — featuring the Basilica Nuestra Senora del Pino — and visit the quiet, protected landscape of Bandama Caldera, a 4,000-year-old volcanic crater. On the return trip to the Port of Las Palmas, stop at a local wine cellar for a wine tasting with artisan cheese. All entry fees plus a port pickup and drop-off are included.
  • Private Las Palmas shore excursion to Teror and Bandama Caldera
  • Spend a day discovering Gran Canaria’s history, culture and natural landmarks
  • Explore the traditional village of Teror on a walking tour and see Basilica de la Virgen del Pino
  • Enjoy a wine- and cheese-tasting session in a wine cellar near the caldera
  • Covered by Viator's worry-free policy: guaranteed on-time return to your ship

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.

Our tour guide Frank was great! He took us to the volcano crater and explained about the formation of the island and the natural flora. We also went to a couple of villages that were very pretty and Frank did a good job of explaining the history of the area. We were getting hungry so he took us to his hometown and went to a local restaurant where we got to sample local food and wine. Delicious!
This was one of the best tours we did on our cruise in Spain and the Canary Islands.

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!

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.
