As per several tours on this cruise, the tour guides interest and attention was not focused on the customers. He could hardly walk and had one “sight” in mind, a local vendor. The historic district looked worth seeing but we did not have the chance.

El Centro histórico is La Laguna's downtown. It has a colonial heritage and it's closed to the motor traffic. You can walk around the streets, shop in any of the shops or eat somewhere.

Many beautiful buildings, elegant streets, meeting local people, genuine cuisine, a stark contrast to resorts in the south of the island. Worth spending at least couple of hours wondering around or stopping over whenever the road takes you to this part of the island. Very...More

Our cruise ship stop was on a Sunday and we took a shore excursion. We saw other tours from different operators at some of our stops.
