Brilliant tour with very knowledge and friendly tour guide. The tour covers pretty much entire island except for the West part of it, so you get to go to the highest point in the National Park, inactive Volcano, lots of villages on the island that are relevant to the Gran Canaria history and development. Do not be put off by the word lazy, it's this tour exceeded my expectations and as a solo traveller I was lucky to meet other solo travellers on the bus. Highky recommend it!

It was great! We were there early in the morning, so not many people were there yet. We saw many different fish, sea urchins, starfish. Simply wonderful, would do it again and again and can only recommend it. There were only two of us snorkeling and we had our guide to ourselves. She was super nice and motivated. She knew a lot about the fish.

It was a very nice tour with great weather. Guide Marina provided us with a lot of useful information about the tour and the island during the tour; highly recommended!

The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The tour covered a few different areas, along with a few 'surprises'. Would definitely recommend.

Super friendly instructor, well planned and so enjoyable recommended anytime. Both activities were just amazing
