Excursions Gran Canaria

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain
About Excursions Gran Canaria
Hello, my name is Pavel and I am a licenced guide for Gran Canaria. Welcome to my 1 man company Excursions Gran Canaria! I provide 1 wonderful tour weekly. It starts and finishes in Las Palmas, although it is manageable also for the southern resorts holidaymakers to join (Maspalomas etc; see the description of the tour). I design my tours in the way I would like to be guided through this beautiful island. You will learn about its history, people, gastronomy, architecture, plants and nature. During the winter season LAZY WEDNESDAY TOUR - you will cross the island from the north to the south. You will visit a volcano, stroll picturesque villages, admire the views from the highest mountain and enjoy a quick swim by the sand dunes. There will be another tour for the summers you will discover soon! Enjoy!

I went on the Lazy Wednesday tour of Gran Canaria in February. I booked it at the tourist information place in Santa Catalina park Las Palmas. I spent a week in Gran Canaria (Las Palmas) and this trip was easily the most fun, informative, and interesting thing I did. And it was inexpensive. Not only did we go to many scenic places (the whole island), but the tour guide Pavel is superb. He's well prepared so you don't waste your time - he took meal orders on the bus and phoned them in, and even served meals in the restaurant to speed things up. And he's really entertaining and informative, there are no times when you just sit on the bus and do nothing. The tour is in English and Spanish, and one smart thing he does is switch between them frequently so you're never waiting long for the English part (Spanish is not one of the languages I speak). There are frequent stops so you never spend a long time on the bus. The roads and buses are such that there's no way I could have done the trip by myself, and thankfully I didn't. Pavel should give tour guide lessons on how to do a great job, it's rare that one finds a guide of his talent. I also took a day tour of Tenerife, and although it wasn't bad, the guide wasn't nearly as good - he droned on and on in one language before switching and he seemed bored. It was a good contrast between the two day-trips. If you can only do one, take the Lazy Wednesday one. This tour is a bargain at double the price, you won't regret going.

Probably one of the best day tours I have been on both for the itinerary and the guide. Pavlo was amazing with his energy and knowledge while the towns and coffee plantation very interesting. Almost too much packed in a day as little time for a swim at the final,stop.
