An extremely well organised day, my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is not for the faint hearted, the drops on some of the narrow roads, certainly took my breath away! The food and sangria provided was really tasty. All staff were great, special thanks to Alan our driver for his exceptional driving, although I’m sure my leaning to one side helped keep the jeep from hurtling over the edge.

I recommend this trip to everyone who is first time in this part of Gran Canaria and want in quick in easy way see all seaside. Great trip and great guide who took us everywhere and told many interesting things
