One of the most affordable and informative tours on the island! Pavel is knowledgeable and fun, making for a fantastic day out. It was clear he was tailoring the tour to the group- as there were no children present the info was slightly more 'grown up' which made for lots of laughs. Time in each location was fast, but we did not feel rushed. The highlight for us was definitely eating at the local restaurant in Fataga, beautiful food and stunning setting. Simply somewhere we would not have visited otherwise. For the price I can't believe how much we saw. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Gran Canaria.

My wife and I went in this tour last week and can highly recommended it. The organisation and communication was first class. You get to experience amazing mountain views and see some small villages. There are regular stops for photo opportunities and a cafe break and lunch break. Pavel is a great guide who makes the tour fun, informative and welcoming to everyone on the tour. A special mention for Salvador who is a brilliant driver.

A well thought off amazing tour, with a quick witted tour-guide that made the trip an incredibly adventure. A day well spent, learning both about the history of Gran Canaries and of the local towns on the hills.

Great adventure tour off the main roads. So it feels like an adventure. Some of the views were spectacular. The German-speaking tour guide Antonio is a bit crazy, but very nice. Always my pleasure!

Pavel is a great guide, whole tour was filled with interesting historical facts, excellent viewpoints and great attitude and mood! Totally recommend
