Last week four of us signed up for a trip with Low Cost Tours, which would take us around the coast of Gran Canaria, including the reputedly stunning West Coast which none of us had even been to. We realised something might be amiss when we left Puerto Mogan and headed straight on to the GC1 towards Las Palmas. The... More

Dear Maggie, The reason why we could not do the Island Tour over the west cost is as simple as on the very same day, Saturday, there was a large rockslide on the road from San Nicolas to Agaete and they close the road to all the trafic. The decision taken was for reasons of force majeure beyong our control.... More

It's not such a low cost tour - just the going price. We chose the Gran Canaria Highlights tour with attractions listed - with no apology or reason we did not visit them, instead being dropped off at random points for 1/2 hour stops where there would be a "handy" coffee stop and not much else. The scenery along the... More

Dear Guess, We regret that your experience was not quite as you expected. Nonetheless and in relation to your comments we would like to point out the following. First of all, since you said that a visit was not done, we understand that you made the tour on the 5th or the 6th of January when the Ron factory was... More

The guide books tell you that some visitors to Playa del Ingles never leave the resort during their stay. In 10 years of visiting we had never visited the north and centre of the Island and using the Low Cost Tour we remedied this. It was a superb day and we had a view of Gran Canaria which should be...

Went on the open jeep safari with my two adult daughters in December 2014. We have done jeep safaris before in Portugal, Croatia and Fuerteventura. This one was not a good experience. The jeeps were open and we were adequately dressed but many other people turned up in shorts and t-shirts. Because of the wind chill factor and cool air... More

I can definetely recommend that tour. Scenic panorama tour with great insights in gran can's beautiful countryside (pics following). There are many green places on the island -you wouldn't imagine - valley of 1000 palms and roque nublo are gorgeous. 29€ for almost a whole day - I couldn't find any cheaper tour. The big companies take 49€ for the... More

The stops are too short and in the least interesting places - our tour guide genuinely told us virtually nothing about the island or any of the locations we visited (yet gave seemingly longer descriptions in other languages.) I feel I know less about the island now than I did before the tour as so many brain cells died from... More

We found this tour to be great value as they picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. On the way to the botanic gardens we stopped at the bandama crater which was very nice and something we couldn't have done alone as we did not have a car. It would have been nice to spend more time... More

I did the Gran Canaria Hilights Tour. It's a good way to get a basic grasp of the amazing variety of landscapes the island has to offer. Having read previous reviews, I avoided the lunch at restaurand and instead I bought a take away sandwich and a drink in Teror. When we stopped at the restaurant, I walked up the... More
