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,
I read quite a bit about the tour and was therefore somewhat skeptical. But what I was able to experience positively exceeded all of my expectations. We were a group of five people, started in Maspalomas, were picked up with our own vehicle and an extremely personable driver (Alexandra) who impressed with her driving skills and in-depth knowledge. The tour guide was Alex, and you immediately had the feeling that nothing can go wrong. Everything went stress-free, the announced goals were all worked through, all photo stops were made and lunch was awesome. Actually I had planned to do this tour with the rental car, but after we had reached the mountains I knew that I had made the right decision would have. Passenger without stress. Great. I recommend everyone who reads this review to do this tour. Thank you Alex and thank you Uwe. And one more thing, this is not a bought review but an experienced one.
Very correct explanations. long haul, guide named José, very friendly. money spreads, because it takes several hours. without any problem.
Had a lovely day. Seen and heard a lot from Jan, our Norwegian driver. How much he could tell! Thanks for that!
Uwe is a very good tour guide. I would book again and again.
