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!

This was a phenomenal tour. Our guide - Pavel - was just incredible. From the minute the bus left Catalina Parque, Pavel was giving us information about the day, and pointing out places of interest in the surrounding streets. We saw a great variety of sights, and learned so much about Gran Canaria. The tour ended as Maspalomas Beach, which - personally - I didn't think was the best ending. I think the bus should stop at the start of the sand dunes trail, so that people could take pictures of the dunes, and wander into them for a brief time. There was no time for swimming, and being at the tourist beach was not for me (But, of course, other travellers might love that)

This was such a great excursion! You get to explore the island and see the variety of it in a very easy way 'cause everything was well organized. You get to know interesting details about the history etc. And Pavel was the greatest guide ever! I would love to go to any excursion hosted by Pavel! I went there by myself and met so great people on the trip and overall had an amazing day! I highly recommend ❤️
