This was a great day of exploring the highlights on the island. The guide was very knowledgeable and customised the trip around the bad weather we had to make the most of viewing points. I'm sorry to have not gotten her name correctly, but believe it was "Selini?" <--sorry! The restaurant for lunch is the only thing we would change (and we're not picky), but it really was pretty bad. That being said, it wasn't why we joined the tour either so don't be put off by that. The tour bus holds about 20-25 people so a bit more than we usually like to travel with, but mad the winding roads a bit more comfortable than one of those very large buses. Barbara, our driver should also be commended. The guide knew we had another appointment at the end of the day and made a special effort to get us to our hotel entrance in time which was also much appreciated.

Excellent tour with a good mix of sitting on the bus and getting off to explore towns or taking pictures at scenic spots. Stop for lunch where you can have a set meal at a restaurant or buy sandwiches. Tour guide was very informative, friendly and always concerned that he didn't leave anyone behind at any of the stops. Driver was careful on the narrow windy mountain roads

Best guide ever. Experienced, knowledgeable, friendly, he had prepared and thought of everything. Highly, highly recommend for your full Gran Canaria experience!
