If you love walking and learning about the place you're visiting then Blackstone Treks and Tours are for you. We went on two walks with Jose, our guide. Jose is really friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic with a deep love for the island of Lanzarote that is infectious. The treks are well organised and great value for money. We went on... More

We were fortunate enough to attend a guided tour (for two) with Blackstone's nice and competent guide. During the walk we got ein lectures about different types of volcanoes, lava (Pahoehoe lava and A'A lava) and the sparse vegetation of lichens and moss. Recommend taking a walking tour in this fascinating landscape.

After much consultation on the internet we (4 adults) decided to contact and hire the Blackstone Treks & Tours. Essential service especially for those who have little time to explore and enjoy the area. The professionalism, knowledge of local history and the flexibility to adapt to the specific demands are decisive factors for the choice. Our guide José Luis made... More

We arrived aboard a cruise ship and were met by Raquel. She spent the day showing us the highlights of Lanzarote including the volcano, where we could actually touch rocks that are still heated by the volcano. We visited the caves within the lava tubes, where an artist has constructed a beautiful environment that you must see to believe. We... More

My friend and I did the Fire Route trek on Tuesday 07th October and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. We received a personalized service from our guide Raquel as we were the only two clients booked on the trip that day. Our guide picked us up from our hotel and drove us to Timanfaya National Park. Raquel made... More

We were party of 4 and wanted to see some other,more natural parts of Lanzarote besides a bar filled strip. Blackstone treks filled this requirement fully! Jose proved to be an friendly and knowledgeable guide. His enthusiasm for the Islands nature and landscape was obvious from the start when he walked us to the top of a volcano and spoke... More

We decided to do the fire route, because we are very interested in vulcanism. Raquel picked us up and we drove to the starting point near to the Timanfaya National Parc. We made a walkabout through the lava fields, which were impressive. Raquel told us a lot about the history of Lanzarote and the vulcanism on the island. We were... More

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.

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
