    Perfekt war dass wir nur 16 Personen waren . Gerade in Coronazeiten. Das Personal sehr freundlich und servicebereit. Alles sauber und coronakonform Nur das Premium Buffet war ein Schälchen aus Plastik mit kalten Mojokartoffeln , ein paar Stücken kaltem Hühnchen und Nudelsalat. Das hätte man schoener anrichten koennen mit mehr Geschmack. Dafür wurde auch ein gewisser Betrag berechnet. Denke ich?

    We booked the panoramic tour because we wanted to avoid wasting any precious vacation time on dealing with the hassle that comes with a do-it-yourself sight seeing tour (you know: finding a rental car, reading tourist guides to define a route, looking for parking space at every sightseeing location etc). Obviously, excursions come at a cost but we have to admit that at least this one, was well worth it. We were picked up at our hotel at the correct time by a charming, friendly guide (called Uwe) who during the whole 8 hour tour, provided us with interesting information about Gran Canaria, showed professional driving skills and provided enough flexibility for everyone (we were a group of 6) to take the time we needed at each stop. Part of the package was also an all-in lunch in a local restaurant which gives the opportunity to actually taste the real local cuisine. But now... the verdict... well, since this excursion met all expectations and there's nothing really which we didn't like,

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 2,713 reviews

We did not use the transport, so I cannot give a rating on this. Basically, of course, the whole thing is very dependent on the actually existing waves. We were lucky so we had great fun too and would definitely recommend it. Just don't expect to be able to surf properly after the one-day course. For us it worked to a certain extent at the end of the 2nd day (booked separately on site).

Great trip into the mountains with Land Rover Safari vehicles. Dirt track roads, hairpin bends with abyssal drops over the edge all add to make this a worthwhile trip. Go for the included lunch to get genuine Gran Canarian food. Highly recommended!

It was a very nice catamaran tour. The staff on the ship were very nice and took good care of their guests. Every guest could experience something.
