Super nice guide Vanessa. Very hard to explain everything understandable, answers all questions and likes to take photos. Tour overall very interesting, you see a lot, you might not need 1-2 stops, but it gives a nice overall picture of the island. Would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have much time in Lanzarote and wants to see a lot. Camel ride was fun, especially for kids but nothing spectacular if you don't take part.

The trip was worth the money!!! With Vanessa we had a great tour guide with a lot of knowledge and friendliness! We got to know the island from north to south with all its beautiful and special features! A must for newcomers to the island!!

Did the trip on January 5th, 2023 & are absolutely satisfied. Great guide, great bus driver, great tour. I recommend booking the whole tour as it allows you to get to know both sides of the island. Thumbs up!

The trip was well organized. Dear Vanessa brought a lot of information about this strange lava island. Was helpful too. Only the double-decker bus wasted a lot of time getting off.

From picking us up from the ship to getting back to the ship in the evening, everything worked out great. Very nice tour guide from the Lanzarote guite company.
