My husband and I have just got back from a week away in Lanzarote for the first time. Whilst out there we organised a private tour to take us around the volcanos and a few other sites. We were both extremely impressed by the helpfulness and friendliness of Jose. His knowledge of the island was amazing and he made sure... More

Fantastic company! Blackstone provides great walks for both beginners and more advanced hikers/trekkers. We went on two excursions, both with José as pur guide. The walks were extremely beautiful, showing sights we would not have found on our own. Our guide is very knowledgeable, is very sociable and managed to make sure everybody in the group had a good time.... More

A real taste of the geology and history of Lanzorote. I found this company through trip advisor and consequently contacted guide Jose by e mail a month before I came to lanzorote. From the beginning I knew the experience would be good because Jose always e mailed me back and suggested dates/ treks for me. This was very comforting for... More

Jose not only took us on a beautiful secret-path hike we would not have otherwise found ourselves but also told us all about the history, landscape and vegetation of the island. It really brought the island to life for us and helped us appreciate what we see much more! Our favorite part of the trip was looking down a huge... More

A fantastic day out with Jose and another couple from England. We did the fire route and I was astounded by Jose language skills, I'm working on my guide qualification at the moment and if I could explain concepts in Spanish as clearly as he does in English I'd be delighted. He was friendly, professional, highly knowledgeable and I would... More

I decided to go a trek at the last moment and when I called to inquire, Jose, was most kind and professional (despite him being on holiday) to include me in next morning's trek - The Fire Route. Raquel, promptly picked me up at the Hotel in the morning and I was immediately at ease, I had a wonderful time.... More

We had a great afternoon out with Jose who rearranged a trek for us due to unforeseen circumstances and then dropped us at the airport. He is so knowledgable about his home island, you come back having been educated by someone with loads of enthusiasm for this rather special place. We chose La Geria as it had a wine tasting... More

We booked the Fire Route to explore the volcanoes in Lanzarote in May 2014. Jose was a welcoming and friendly guide with fluent English and an excellent understanding of the natural history of the Island and an evident respect for and love of the natural world. We gained a fascinating insight into the history of Lanzarote and volcanoes in general.... More

We booked a trek with Jose at fairly short notice and went on the Fire Route on a very hot day in May. Right from the beginning our correspondence with Jose was timely and professional. We were only in Lanzarote for two days and wanted to learn as much about the island as possible. Jose was waiting for us bright... More
