What people are saying about Los Gigantes

We had a great time on this tour. Fernando was an excellent tour guide with so much knowledge and Maximo, our driver, was also an excellent DJ and barman! I would definitely recommend this tour. The stargazing was amazing.

Great tour on a small yacht. There were only 10 people on the boat and we felt like we were alone. Great alternative for trips full of people where you have to fight for the seat on the deck. We can highly recommend it.

Nous avons vu des baleines et des dauphins. Nous avons pu nous baigner à côté des falaises. Les guides très sympathiques et intéressants et très bienveillants. A refaire! Merci
