fantastic guide and driver, all in all a great day out. loved learning all the local information. this trip is a must, the North is a completely different place. Alex was extremely knowledgeable and the driver very skilled. the stops were just long enough to see what you needed. very cost effective

Everything was well planned, in terms of travel times, possible delays on the way, and ample time to see each point. For a full day trip, this was certainly a great way to see the main attractions accompanied by useful and nerdy information for scientists and geography buffs like me.

Fantastic boat trip. We saw dolphins and were able to enjoy a swim in gorgeous blue waters near Los Gigantes. Lunch was great and complimentary drinks included were a nice touch. Would recommend.

We had a lovely guide! you get to stop at several nice places and learn about the area. Although lunch place had no vegetarian options, they were very lovely and made me a Spanish tortilla ;)

Good day on the ship, the crew of ten make you feel at home, they gave us paella and a dressing and all the drinks you wanted. I would repeat without a doubt.
