Excellent driver and very informative guide. A great relaxing way to see around the island and learn about it rather than driving some of those crazy roads ourselves. Highly recommend it.

Great way to see hidden gems of Gran Canaria and the guide was amazing . Canarian food though is an adventure . :)

Really good trip, well worth the value especially the Canadian lunch

Very well organized to get a good impression of the island.
