  • Gran Canaria: Panorama Tour

    1. Gran Canaria: Panorama Tour

    Start your day from Maspalomas before taking the scenery filled drive to Mirador las Moscas. On the way, you will enjoy a fantastic break at the famous sand dunes, a place people love to grab some memorable holiday snaps. Continue on your journey to Fataga Village where you will have time to visit the old center, not to mention grab a coffee and use the amenities.  Your next stop on the tour is in San Brtolomé de Tirajana, from which you will be able to reach Ayacata and Tejeda, the highest altitude point in the area. Whilst in the antique center of Tejeda, you can visit a herbal tea museum and try some local herbal infusions. Continuing on, you'll reach the cave houses in Artenara, one of the most important and popular attractions of the island.  On the way to the island in Fontanales, you will stop at Monte Pavon Mirador, and take some fotos of Las Palmas and Tenerife. After a typica...

    We booked the panoramic tour because we wanted to avoid wasting any precious vacation time on dealing with the hassle that comes with a do-it-yourself sight seeing tour (you know: finding a rental car, reading tourist guides to define a route, looking for parking space at every sightseeing location etc). Obviously, excursions come at a cost but we have to admit that at least this one, was well worth it. We were picked up at our hotel at the correct time by a charming, friendly guide (called Uwe) who during the whole 8 hour tour, provided us with interesting information about Gran Canaria, showed professional driving skills and provided enough flexibility for everyone (we were a group of 6) to take the time we needed at each stop. Part of the package was also an all-in lunch in a local restaurant which gives the opportunity to actually taste the real local cuisine. But now... the verdict... well, since this excursion met all expectations and there's nothing really which we didn't like,

  • Gran Canaria: 1 to 3 Person Parasail over Anfi Beach

    2. Gran Canaria: 1 to 3 Person Parasail over Anfi Beach

    Enjoy unobstructed bird's-eye views of Gran Canaria as you fly above the sea accompanied by one or two friends on this breathtaking parasailing adventure. Begin your activity with a brief introduction and safety review, and then you’ll be ready to take to the air. Embark on a boat which will take you out to sea. When you reach the parasailing spot, lift smoothly off the ground as your parachute opens and you get higher and higher in the sky. Watch as the sea falls away below you and you experience the feeling of free flight above the Gran Canaria coastline. Feel the breeze in your hair and the sun on your face as you fly through the sky on a 10-minute flight.

    Loved the whole experience from start to finish. The instructors where knowledgable and professional. The whole experience felt COVID safe with excellent hygiene precedences. The check in process was efferent and friendly.

  • Las Palmas: Bandama, High Peaks, and Roque Nublo Tour

    3. Las Palmas: Bandama, High Peaks, and Roque Nublo Tour

    You'll depart from the Las Palmas city center from where you will head to the center of the island towards San Mateo. There you will be able to enjoy a short break of 30 minutes, with the chance to visit the farm market which stocks plenty of local products (only open on Saturday). From there you'll continue driving to reach the summit of Gran Canaria, which sits at 1,959 meters and is referred to as “Pico de las Nieves”. From this viewpoint you will enjoy stunning views of the high peaks, and if the weather is clear you will be able to see Tenerife. After that you will move down to "The Roque Nublo”, a huge basalt monolith rock more than 65 meters high which arose as a result of volcanic activity and erosion. This unique volcanic formation is protected as a natural monument. rom there you will stop at the Cross of Tejeda and its Parador National, where you can taste plenty of local Ca...

    Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a hassle-free day out in the mountains. It’s one of the best day tours I’ve ever been on, stunning views, very small group, friendly driver, comfortable and modern coach and very knowledgable and cheerful guide. Whenever I come back to Canaria, I will, for sure do this tour again. We have been given plenty of opportunities to take pictures and enjoy the scenery as well as explore Teror and San Mateo towns.

  • Gran Canaria: Off-Road Day Tour with Optional Camel Ride

    4. Gran Canaria: Off-Road Day Tour with Optional Camel Ride

    Spend an unforgettable day discovering Gran Canaria’s interior on a 4-whell drive safari that takes you along dirt paths and rural roads. You’ll travel by fully-equipped jeep with a highly skilled driver and guide, who knows every inch of the route. On this 7-hour tour, you’ll head to the very heart of the island and experience why Gran Canaria is referred to as a miniature continent. The tour offers you plenty of opportunities to take photos and also a stop for lunch to enjoy typical Canarian specialties.  You’ll feel like a desert scout or even like Lawrence of Arabia, as you ride a gentle camel through the 1000 Palm Tree Valley. You don’t need to ride on the hump, by the way, as the camels are fitted with comfortable 2-seater saddles!

    Pleasant trip, more info about the areas we were visiting would have been a nice choice (eg. S. Lucia church and the village...). The driver Gabri was fun (we were trying to understand his Spanish, answering in Italian, he was doing the opposite and the experiment was quite successful!)

    My guide was Bruno. He was both knowledgeable and honest. I felt we really do two tours in one. I think the highlight for my husband was the coffee farm and winery. Mine was the visit to the town Teror. He mentioned he was married in the church there. Everywhere we went he had a connection. He was also able to answer related questions. All and all it was a good day.

    The guide was very well informed, interesting, helpful and cheerful, without being “in your face”. I had arrived at the tour meeting point by rental bike, and at the end of the tour he insisted on accompanying me to where I had parked it to make sure it was still there (it was!)

    Manuel was an excellent guide for our first visit to Las Palmas. He showed us a great variety of interesting aspects of the city and answered all our questions. Using taxis and walking was a perfect combination to see the city. Thoroughly recommended.

Totally recommendable. Very attentive both Juan Carlos and Yemi. All very safe, and the immersion very fun. They are always attentive that you are comfortable and feel safe. Without a doubt we will repeat a new dive with them.

Definitely take something to put on. It was a lot of fun to drive with Laura. But after that I got a total cold. Because you sweat and the jeeps are open.

At the top I highly recommend Marina is top is the drivers also very pleasant we had a great day

It was a great experience and the pictures 50 pieces. on stick for a fair price of 15 €
