Alles war hervorragend organisiert. Unsere Reiseführer waren exzellent, Victor brachte alle zum Lachen und von Marlna haben wir gefühlt die gesamte Geschichte Cran Canarias erfahren, inklusive aller Fragen in perfektem Französisch oder Englisch beantwortet bekommen. Wir haben ein Einblick in das Landesinnere bekommen; das lokale Leben erkundet; eine tolle Wanderung gemacht und ein köstliches Essen in einer eher unscheinbaren Taverne genossen, die ihr bestimmt so nirgendwo im touristischen Zentrum findet. Wir können es nur empfehlen.

Marine our guide from Climbo was amazing. She had great knowledge about Gran Canaria. The infrastructur, geology, history and everything. She could answer all out queations. I have been to many daytrips in my life and this is the best so far. The weather was amazing and we got some cool Instagram shots as well.

Fantastic day, at least if you like real challenges and local culture. Marina and the guide were very caring and well versed in local specifics, making it a wonderful day. Although I must say that the group machete very well with each other.
