This was my first visit to Gran Canaria, for number of reasons I decided to stay in the north (Las Palmas) and bought 2 (+1) tours 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 incl. "covid times" and impact on tourims (seeing empty hotels in Maspalomas), and the like. Excellent.
What a great day out! Highly recommend to you would like to get away from the beach and see the beautiful landscapes of the island. We made a number of stops to marvel at the variety of the views and also had a stroll around a little cute village. Uwe, our driver & tour guide, has been most welcoming, friendly and very cheerful. Can’t rave enough about Uwe, he is an absolute legend!
Camels looked well kept and happy, had a lovely time and staff were really nice and made me feel safe during the ride. Such a quiet and beautiful ride.
It was very straight forward, the staff were helpful and did follow the Heath procedures implemented by the coronavirus.
a very gentle circuit in the dunes - I loved meeting the camels and it was a lovely was to experience seeing the dunes
