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,
This was my first visit to Gran Canaria, for number of reasons I decided to stay in the north (Las Palmas) and bought 2 (+1) tours around the island to get better idea of different regions and places of importance. All of the tours were amazing: small groups, the routes were planned with great detail and knowledge of the island, they well-balanced nature, towns/villages and museums (!); stops to enjoy sights, have coffee or lunch were adequate; and equally important: the guides were fantastic! I have trully enjoyed their talking on all kind of topics related to local history, fauna, flora, geology, archeology, customs, legends, social specifics related to current life incl. "covid times" and impact on tourims (seeing empty hotels in Maspalomas), and the like. Excellent.
Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a hassle-free day out in the mountains. It’s one of the best day tours I’ve ever been on, stunning views, very small group, friendly driver, comfortable and modern coach and very knowledgable and cheerful guide. Whenever I come back to Canaria, I will, for sure do this tour again. We have been given plenty of opportunities to take pictures and enjoy the scenery as well as explore Teror and San Mateo towns.
Loved the whole experience from start to finish. The instructors where knowledgable and professional. The whole experience felt COVID safe with excellent hygiene precedences. The check in process was efferent and friendly.
Great day, many interesting stops and made better by our super informative guide Frank
