Tour guide was excellent and friendly Whole trip was enjoyable to Maspalmas dunes , and view from mountains Highlight of the day was Mogan so pretty there from the buildings to the lovely beach where you could swim which I did Also nice restaurants and shops there for gifts However stop at Arguineguin market was not very good and others thought so to so think should be left out and other stop included instead or longer stay at Mogan in future

It's just worth driving. 2 different markets, with music, tasting (on your own), plenty of time to look, shop, taste and... dance. There you can see how the people live there. No mass tourism

Alex was really good and experienced showing us clearly and thoroughly. He made me confident even at my age to try and was just so warm and caring.

Our guide, Selena was a delight really told us all the history and information about the places we were visiting

Brilliant guide very informative. Loved the place so booking here next year many thanks.
