What people are saying about Gran Canaria

It was amazing and the guide made us feel special and really comfortable. He was nice and friendly. I cannot remember his name but he was French. We misunderstood about the meeting point location so the guide gave us a call and even being in the wrong place he went to pick us up. It is very nice to learn about culture and I really liked that the tour is translated to many languages so everyone can understand the place's history and the guide's jokes.

The whole tour was very good. From start to finish we felt in good hands with our tour guide Marcel. He already explained a lot about the area on the way to the hotels. At a viewing platform overlooking Cofete Beach and on the beach itself, we had time to disembark before heading to the villa. The villa is also very impressive and the story behind it is really very exciting. This trip is really worth it!

The tour guide Marcel is in a very good mood and picked us up at the hotel on time. During the drive he told us interesting things about the island of Fuerteventura and despite the partly uneven road to Cofete Beach we felt safe in the car. Cofete beach is beautiful and Villa Winter was very interesting. Marcel also knew a lot about Villa Winter.

Funny guy, very good timing for the sunset and made sure that I catch my bus, I really appreciated it!

Nice guide, cool sights, new car with air conditioner. Definitely recommend
