Wonderful tour GC

Very nice tour. Beautiful views of GC and Simon is a great tourguide. He knows so much about the island and loves to talk about it. If you want to see something more than your hotel and the beach go around with Simon. I had a wonderful day.

So pleased we chose this tour with Simon.This being our first visit to the island, had our experience of Gran Canaria been confined to our stay at the hotel in our resort then our holiday would have been the poorer for it. The trip was well organised and very insightful. We covered so much of the island with regular stops for refreshment and the opportunity to visit villages and see places of natural interest. The views were spectacular. Simon is relaxed, personable and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to spend the day with him and our fellow travellers. Would highly recommend.
A must do tour in GC.

Yes definitely one of the better tours on the island a nice small group of like minded people. Simon was very knowledgeable and made it fun delighted we booked this. The roads are steep and windy on way to the highest point but no other way up, driver was very careful. Visited some amazing spots, great photographic opportunities and taste testing local rum and honey with cheeses was a great idea. A fabulous tapas delicious lunch was provided as well as trying a local coffee and time to shop for souvenirs or light a candle in a local church. Dropped off in tim
e for a dip in the hotel pool. A fun day and not on the bus too long before stops, but perhaps not recommended for very young children.
Amazing Tour - Favourite Day of the Holiday!(Big Thanks to Simon Who is an AMAZING GUIDE with plentyof surprising facts)

Memorable tour

We enjoyed the beauty of island sights from a high elevation as our competent driver climbed the winding hills. Our guide took us through small towns and even provided sweet coffee on one break. The pace was nice and we learned a lot about the history and culture. There was time to shop but the focus was correctly placed on understanding more about Gran Canaria. If I could tour with Simon again I would jump at the opportunity.
