The trip was fantastic! Pavel is well-spoken and fun and knows a lot about the island, either historic facts or just fun information. He also suggests other places worth visiting on the island, so this might be a great day-trip on the beginning of your vacation. The tour bus is a smaller bus, that sits approximately 20 people, so it is not overcrowded. The tour starts in Las Palmas, from where you first visit a volcanic crater, followed by a short coffee break, then comes the famous Pico de las Nieves, an interesting traditional house in San Bartolome de Tirajana, and lunch, next is "Grand Canyon of Gran Canaria" and lastly, the sand dunes in Maspalomas. It might not seem like a lot, but it covers the west, south, and middle part of the island. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone, the scenery is beautiful and the day well spent.

This was just an amazing tour with a fantastic guide. We learned so much about Gran Canaria, saw spectacular scenery and Pavel made the trip so informative and interesting. The group was about 25 people which worked well. We were amazed by the scenery in central Gran Canaria. We don’t usually do organised tours, but this one appealed to us and we were not disappointed! Thank you so much Pavel. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour of this beautiful island. Stopped at all the great sites to take in the beautiful landscapes. Its a long day but it did not feel rushed at all. Would recommend doing this at the start of your holiday to get a bearing of things then you can visit the other gems mentioned during the tour. Our driver was very good driving the bus up and down those very windy roads.
