We (1 adult and 5 teenagers) had a wonderful time on our rented bicycles. All cyclists were supplied with helmets, locks and a map and really helpful advice about places to visit. All really helpful and good to see the concerns about safety. The customer service was superb. We arrived a day early (too much in holiday mode!) but they still allowed us to take the bikes. On top of that when we were unlucky enough to get a puncture, they were incredibly responsive, answering my call immediately and the bike was fixed within 20mins. Gran Canaria was safe for cycling, even for inexperienced cyclists. Together with the good quality bikes and excellent customer service, I would highly recommend this activity. We also found it the best value for money activity on the island.

Beautiful, varied, sometimes not very easy via ferrata hike. We have experience with via ferrata so it wasn't a problem for us. For inexperienced people it is certainly a challenge in places, although Manuel could always help with an additional safety device. Therefore also feasible for inexperienced people. We really enjoyed the trip. Our guide Manuel was great and told us a lot of interesting things. We would 100% recommend the tour and Manuel.

Such a well structured day! I think the adults enjoyed it as much as the kids Would definitely recommend & would love to return again one day.

This is a fantastic show, all the characters interact with the crowd, great day out.

Great place to visit if you like the history of the Wild West,
