About
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. On the 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. Enjoy!
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Gran Canaria, Spain

We saw the real beauty of Gran Canaria and the history of the island was explained. The tour guide was very good who keep the tour interesting and light hearted. A must tour if you are new to the island, also a very good value for the price.

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.

Brilliant! This was our second tour organised by Pavel and each time we have been amazed at the quality of the history and information about Gran Canaria. His enthusiasm about the knowledge of the places he selects to visit is infectious. On both occasions Pavel’s generosity has been notable, for example he provided refreshments. Pavel is both caring and thoughtful towards everyone and has a wonderful sense of humour. His energy is astounding! We would love to come on a future tour.

Thank you Pavel!

I am so glad I booked this tour. It was really quite a special day, largely because of the tour guide, who is a wonderful guy, full of energy and very funny. It really takes a lot of skill to manage everyone's needs and keep the group happy too. It was a really nice group of people who mixed well - 17 in our group - ideal if travelling solo. . Highlights for me were a visit to Tera and the coffee plantation, full of ripening oranges, vines and coffee buds. The scenery is lush and green North of the Island. We were so lucky to get great weather. I'm a very keen photographer and was busy snapping away - stunning landscapes.

For anyone who wants to see parts of Gran Canaria that other tours don't go to I highly recommend this tour.

Gran Canaria is 47km from east to west. This tour covers 200km so that's a very comprehensive tour. We visited small towns with individual histories. Our tour guide has incredible knowledge of the area, It's history and culture. This includes every detail of the coffee making process from start to finish. This was very evident as the tour includes a visit to a small coffee farm which produces coffee unique to Gran Canaria. We could not have asked for a better guide. Very helpful in every way.

There is also an excellent three course lunch available for an extra €7. Definitely worth it.

This tour was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. I cannot put into words how much we enjoyed it. We would recommend it to anyone who visits Gran Canaria and would certainly do it again if we ever come back.

Fantastic day plan and even better tour guide Paul. Very knowledgeable and gave a lot of free time. Got the best lunch of our trip. Only thing to say is the journey can be a bit nauseating but that’s because of the roads and altitude nothing to do with the tour. 5 stars

Great trip showing the real Gran Canaria. From mountain top where we spotted Tenerife in the distance, through small villages that we would never have been able to visit otherwise, we finished of our trip with a stop at Maspalomas. It was a wonderful day. Our tour guide was excellent and made the journey fun while passing on all the facts regarding the areas we visited.
Just one word of warning - Anyone who suffers from travel sickness should be aware that the roads are quite twisty.
