I loved this tour... Pavel is a great guide and holds a wealth of local knowledge. Highlights were the volcano, the free breakfast sandwich and coffee, and the amazing views from the highest mountain tops. Altogether, very good value for money if you want to see fantastic sights and explore the island.

This was a very nice one day road trip around Gran Canary. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable about the history and the spots of each stop and kept us engaged. There were a good number of photo shoot stops in the country side and walks around villages. The restaurant was amazing if you are a foodie like me, perfect to try the local cuisine and enjoy a great view.

The tour was great. Our guide Pawel was very friendly and explained everything clearly. There was enough time at the stops and we got to know the island a lot better. Lunch was delicious and the location was beautiful. There were some little surprises along the way that made the whole thing perfect. I can only recommend it!
