I saw all the five star reviews before booking this guide and I can confirm it did not disappoint. Paval is a great tour guide, extremely friendly and makes everyone feel included. His coffee recommendation is my new go-to drink (thanks, Paval!). As a solo female traveller, this was a great way to see the island whilst feeling safe. It took all the stress out of planning and the landscapes were just breathtaking. If you are visiting GC, please do not leave without doing this island tour. 10/10 experience!

Everything was perfect! The guide was o informed and nice. The other people of the tour were from many different countries and therefore even if I was alone I had no problem at all. I highly recommend this to anyone, the team is great, the tour is useful and what it offers it’s really cheap! Do not miss the opportunity!

It just outreached our expectations. The driver has seriously the best skills and our guide was amazing! We have learned and seen so much and had also enough free time. All in all well structured and perfect for everyone who wants to see the highlights and does not want to rent a car.

A wonderful experience. Going up to the Roque Nublo, and doing there, with those views, the tasting of local products was incredible. And to finish… we contemplate the sunset, from a fantastic location. The very attentive guide, always aware of the group. Very nice.

Really good guide The driver drove calmly and comfortably many +++++ to these 2
