Gustavo was our guide and driver and did a great job. There were great vantage points, especially in the center of Gran Canaria. Even the changeable weather (it rained from time to time) couldn't spoil our good mood in the bus. The food in a restaurant in Fontanales (I had the menu for 14 euros) tasted good and, above all, filled me up. A thoroughly successful trip.

Made a fantastic panorama tour. Uwe was our guide, he spoke both German and English and a little Dutch. Super guy who takes his time. They picked me up at the hotel and brought me back. Delicious eaten a la carte at a small restaurant, I had delicious fish. I can recommend this tour to everyone.

The tour was excellent with plenty of stops with spectacular views. The driver was pleasant and helpful,especially to us less abled. This tour was very much better than the jeep one we did last year. All in all it was really good to see the less touristy bits of the island in all its beauty.

It was a nice tour where you could see a lot of Gran Canaria. Our guide Uwe was able to tell us a lot about the island with a lot of enthusiasm and wit, which we both really liked. All in all a great experience!

A wonderful experience. We have been very comfortable and the tour guide is a magnificent person, with knowledge of several languages. I would definitely repeat it again. Thank you all ..!!!
