This was my first visit to Gran Canaria, for number of reasons I decided to stay in the north (Las Palmas) and bought 2 tours (+1 more based on my satisfaction) 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 and the like. Excellent.
Really good tour: very lively and filled with lots of interesting facts and stories. And the views! Omg, the views are stunning. We've had a lot of stops for pictures - which was really great. I felt like we were a bunch of friends travelling rather than a tour group. The guide, Francisco, was really friendly and very knowledgeable. If you want to see the north and central part of the island then this hassle free experience is the best for it. Highly recommend.
