This spectacular tour is a journey to the heart of our island of Gran Canaria through its history. You will see cave houses and a cave chapel in Guayadeque, spend time learning about aloe vera in an aloe plantation, a nice walk through Firgas, and Cruz de Tejeda enjoying views of Roque Nublo.
The excursion begins towards the historic neighborhood of Villa de Agüimes, where we will take a short tour visiting the sculptures of the town (ancient aboriginal settlement) where we will have the opportunity to visit the interior of the temple.
Next we will go to the Barranco de Guayadeque, a protected natural environment, a magical place full of aboriginal soul where we will discover caves as a place of habitat, as the first settlers of the island did in the past.
We continue the journey heading north until we reach the Firgas area, where we will make a photo stop near the pedestrian zone of the Paseo de las Islas Canarias, a point where we can visit the entire Canary archipelago in a matter of minutes.
After this visit we will go to the Valleseco area, and on the way we will stop to eat (not included) in one of the must-see places in the central area of the island.
We will continue towards the mountain, passing through the Cruz de Tejeda to the Degoyada de Becerra viewpoint, where we will have views of the Roque Nublo and we will go down through San Bartolomé de Tirajana towards the small town of Fataga, where we will have time to discover the old farmhouse that represents the island architecture.
We continue to an Aloe Vera plantation, famous for its healing properties, and where they will teach us how to use it.
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
