Great tour! Really fantastic tour to learn about Cesar Manrique and the impact he had on the island.
Roland, our guide, and Charlie, our driver, were a fantastic team. Especially Roland, who was a wealth of information and seemed to always have something interesting to say wherever we were on the route. His language skills were most impressive and his sense of humour kept us smiling throughout.
The tour felt planned out to perfection, with an excellent amout of time at each stop; we never felt rushed nor did we feel bored.
What can I say we absolutely loved this tour. We had a fantastic day out and was well worth the money. Coach driver and Tour Guide were amazing and would definitely recommend
