Really good guide. However, I would refrain from ordering food along the way, as this took a long time, which could have been better spent in the nice mountain village. It became a bit of a weaning atmosphere, and you weren't allowed to sit on the seats outside in the sun.

Highly recommended Day Trip in Gran Canaria: Pavel is a most knowledgeable and talented guide who gave us a wonderful experience of the island. He also has a great sense of humour which made the trip even more enjoyable. The day was well structured to provide us with a lot of fascinating information and the chance to explore a little on our own when appropriate. We learned about history, traditions, canarian food, the climate, fauna and flora, and the economy of this lovely island. The itinerary provided us with great stops for photos and refreshments. We were even treated to a free mid morning coffee and sandwich. Lunch was in a nice restaurant with a typical canarian menu. The coach was comfortable and driven with skill by Salvador, a most experienced and friendly driver. Don't hesitate to book this excursion!

Amazing day trip! Visited so many beautiful spots around the island and got some incredible photos. Pavel is very knowledgeable and energetic, really made the day a blast. Would highly recommend, especially if you aren’t planning on renting a car and going to these places on your own. Can’t wait to come back!
