The excursion has allowed us to visit several towns and points of interest. We have been able to appreciate the contrasts between the South and the North of the island. The guide, Pepi, has given us a lot of information about the island and even about the other islands of the archipelago.

Couldn't recommend this more. The interior of Gran Canaria is stunning and often missed by tourists sticking to the resorts. Jose was a brilliant, friendly, funny and knowledgeable guide and an expert driver, which helped with some of the narrower off-road mountain tracks!

Really great trip. An awesome guide and a superb driver. Got to see just how big a difference there is in Gran Canaria in terms of landscape, it was truly a trip worth having. Sadly the weather wasn't with us on the mountain top, but nevertheless a trip we'll not forget.

First class excursion with an excellent guide who gave just the right amount of information in two languages.

Gives a good impression of the island. Nice driver and tour guide.
