Fabulous day out, definitely would recommend. the guide was so informative and knew so much of the area being a local. Lunch was lovely. brilliant value for money and a great experience
We were picked up from a meeting point just 5 mins from our hotel and taken to the ferry port by feeder bus. We were introduced to our guide and boarded the ferry, all informed as to which bus to board when we docked. Our guide was excellent, very informed and fluent in Spanish, English and German. We visited a goats' cheese farm with lots of tastings and no pressure to buy ,then had a coffee break in a delightful little village. Then it was on to an aloe vera factory....again no pressure and actually very interesting.
We stopped for an optional 2 course lunch, excellent value at 10 euros, in a small village in the mountains.
Lots of opportunities for photos followed on our nearly total round trip of the island, the sand dunes were very picturesque.
We boarded the ferry home, again without a hitch and on disembarking, were dropped at the door of our hotel.
I paid just over 31 for the whole experience. The ferry fare alone was 40 euros and then you would be stuck in the ferry port at the other side.
I would recommend this tour without hesitation. It is very well organised and excellent value. I also will use Viator again and have already recommended.

Good day trip from Lanzarote. We saw many of the natural geological features on Fuerteventura. Best way of seeing the sights on Fuerteventura as I would not want to have a full holiday staying on Fuerteventura. I would recommend this trip as a day trip from Lanzarote. Lunch was good.
Well organised and knowledgeable guide.Loved every minute of it especially the lunch which was included.Gave us a good insight into another of the Canary Islands.
Excellent tour with a very funny and informative tour guide Antonio.Highly recommended
Great trip I really enjoyed, but it was first and last time I booked something via Viator.
They send me a right confirmation for the day I booked, but for the company who was doing this tour they booked me for a week later. I was lucky that there was a seat available and as I had all right confirmations they let me go.
Very well organized tour from start to finish we were kept entertained by our Dutch guide in 3 languages. The highlights for us were the comfortable short cruise on the ferry from Playa Blanca then the bus trip with very efficient driver Martin on some highly dangerous and windy roads on the mountains, sometimes with no space for 2 cars, never mind a big coach !!! Visit of the aloe vera factory was great too..Average cheap lunch but not mandatory, excellent time keeping every step of the way, brilliant organization, our 1st trip with Viator and there will be plenty more !! Well done Team!!
Fantastic day out, great tour guide. We as a family of four including 10years and 1 year old throughly enjoyed it.
This was a fantastic day trip and worth every penny. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. It was very well organised and our tour guide Paul was fantastic.
The heights at which you see the mountains is just amazing. The sand dunes were lovely, the lunch that was included had a very nice variety. The drinks were included which included wine.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this to anyone as a day trip from Lanzarote.
Most enjoyable trip and would have no hesitation in recommending. Our guide and driver were excellent

After pick up from hotel in Puerto Carmen we went to Playa Blanca where we had an hour to wander round while the coach picked up the people from Playa Blanca.
Great ferry ride over to Fuerteventura where we travelled around the island stopping for a lovely Lunch of local soup then fish or chicken.
Our Guide Paul was Fantastic and very Passionate about the history and future of the Island including Lanzarote.
All in all a great day out and learned a lot about both Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.
The trip was incredibly good value for money and very enjoyable. The tour guide was very informative a really lovely lady. It was a bit of a whirlwind tour but really gave us a 'taster' about Fuerteventura. Really pleasant day out and well worth doing.
The tour guide Michael and the driver Manuel were very efficient and informative that made the trip worthwhile.
Was definately worth doing. Usually there is an aspect of a tour like this that I don't look forward to - in this instance it was the alo factory, but BOY am I glad it was included! Very interesting and informative, and you can even get a free massage! I am glad I stayed in Lanzarote and did this trip over, as opposed to vice versa, as there didn't appear to be much on offer in Fuertaventura. It is a great way of seeing two canary islands in one though!
We emailed for pick up instructions prior to the trip and were advised of a location about 5 minutes from our hotel, so it was a central area rather than accom specific as the tour seems to indicate.
We were picked up in time and had a delightful tour guide called Paul and a driver called Robeto, who as the day went on we appreciated his driving skills.
On reaching Playa Blanca we were allowed an hour here to look around whilst the coach picked up those staying in Playa Blanca as this meant we weren't sat gin ground from hotel to hotel.
We crossed on the 11am ferry, taking our coach from Lanzarote with us, so it meant we could leave belongings on the coach if not required.
Our first stop was lunch, which was 3 courses and consisted of soup, either chicken leg or chicken paella followed by ice cream. Red wine was on the tables, as was bottles of water, and if you wanted a coffee or liqueur this could be ordered for 1euro extra. The food was lovely and wine drinkable.
After lunch we set off to visit the sites on the itinerary - Paul was very knowledgeable and informative and made us laugh. Betancuria was charming as was the church in Pajara, feeding the moral an squirrels was a novelty and Paul had brought the nuts required to tempt them to have their photos taken. I was disappointed we dud not stop in Puerto de Rosaria as detailed, instead we went to an aloe Vera factory! I would rather have had time in the capital to be honest. Visiting the sand dunes was a good way to round off the trip before the ferry back to Lanzarote.
Really enjoyed it apart from the one diversion from the itinerary and would recommend it and say it us good value for money
Very nice tour! My favorite part was the sand dunes. Our guide was very sweet and I noticed that she took her time to talk to everyone on board. She went between English Spanish and german like a true pro! She was awesome! Fuerteventura is a nice island but Lanzarote is much nicer! Good tour!
Was a very good trip, the only thing was I wished we had longer on the beach! Didn and #39;t even have time to walk to the water!
The trip was very interesting with a few stops along the way with something for everyone. The trip was 11 hours so a little long and more than was advertised. A lot of time is spent driving in the mountains on roads hardly wide enough for two vehicles with sheer drop on the other side so if you don't have a head for heights you might want to look at some other trip.
This was a great way to see Fuerteventura to find out whether we'd want to stay there for a week.
It was a long day. We had to be at our pick up point at 0755 and weren't back till 2000. More than the estimated 9 hours mentioned.
Glad to have had the chance for a look at Playa Blanca while the remaining folk were being picked up. Ferry crossings were good. Onboard prices weren't the rip off we're used to at only 1for a cup of tea.
Am glad we didn't have to drive on some of the mountain roads. Some very narrow parts with sheer drops on the other side.
The included lunch was excellent vale especially when we found put that the pay on the day price was over 8 each.
Would have liked to have more time in Betancuria, the dunes and Corralejo. Sadly due to some of our fellow travellers not being able to understand instructions in their own language, we were 15 minutes late leaving Betancuria and over 10 late after lunch. People should really be morec onsiderate of others.
Think that the visit to the Aloe factory was a complete waste of time. The goods onsale were over priced. The semll in the factory shop was over powering - I had to stand outside for the 30 minutes we wasted there.
Much as we enjoyed the trip, we now know it's not a place for us.
Bring your passport for this one, you will need it to get to the island.
It's a very good tour. The coach picks you all up and takes you to the ferry, the tour guide gets all the tickets and you take a ferry for about 30 minutes over to the other island the coach comes with you
You drive off to the cheese farm where you see some camels and lots of goats. Be careful near the Camel, he looks harmless and friendly enough but will bite if he thinks you are food. Though you do get to feed him, just dont hand feed him. After that you get to eat some goat cheese, yummy!
You then visit a small town which was the first settlement on the island, not much to do there but very nice scenery.
From there you are taken to the Aloe Vera plant, where you get an demonstration on how they gather the Aloe Vera and what the inside of the plant is like, you are then given samples to try on your skin, even one to drink, then there is a shop to buy some if you want to.
After that you stop off at the beach for a moment which has some amazing views and the sand is a different colour to other beaches on Lanzarote, it's almost white.
After that you go back to the ferry and go home. A good day.
