Excellent communication re pick up point (WhatsApp /email) Very organised re getting to the port and onto the ferry. Tour guide was multi lingual. Too much to see and do in one day visit but a nice introduction to La Gomera. Lunch was good with a vegetarian/vegan option and a glass of wine provided too. Some free time provided at the end in San Sebastián before the ferry back to Tenerife. Overall a tour worth doing !

This was a great side trip from Tenerife! La Gomera is a beautiful island and we were able to see some of its most beautiful sights and eat some good Spanish food. I would recommend bringing your passport for the ferry and try and sit in the left side of the bus with a good window view. The majority of the ride the best views were from the left side. Loved this trip and will never forget it!

Bad logistics planning for our pick up we were told 7:30am (to arrive at a bus top, not the hotel as advertised).. the bust came at 7:20am and left without us. We had to take a taxi €27 to somewhere ahead so they could pick us up. Such a bad start. The tour itself was lovely as we had an amazing guide
