Negative: I wish I had seen the other reviews before booking. My husband and I got up early to catch the coach for an island tour. We were at the meeting point 15 mins early. The coach showed up 15 mins late. The tour guide exited the bus, I walked up to her with email confirmation of my booking and our 20 Euro deposit in my hand. She told me there was only one couple on the list and (literally) waved us out of the way so another couple could board. She told us we were not on her list and we were booked on another tour. The coach left us standing there. I should tell you, I was 7 months pregnant at the time.

Positive: We contacted the booking office and David was absolutely wonderful. He apologized several times and offered to get us on another tour and buy us lunch. Unfortunately we already had something booked for the day the tour ran and weren't able to take him up on the offer. The made sure we received a refund the very next day.

Excellent day out to see the mountains and other areas of Gran Canaria. Guides was knowledgeable and friendly. We were lucky to have a clear day and had amazing views of the mountains, Roque Nublo and could see Tenerife Clearly across the sea. I would recommend sitting on the right side of the coach if possible as you will see more of the coast and on the mountains you will mainly be on the best side to get the best views. The lunch cost €10.50 for 3 courses and wine and water were also provided. The little restaurant overlooked the Roque Nublo and the

Well at least the tour picked us up on Time, however things went rapidly downhill from there onwards. We spent NINETY minutes picking up other customers. The guide had poor English and the microphone on the coach did not work. The guide was reading from notes and didn't point out important landmarks on the journey. He would say be back at the coach in 20 minutes in English and 30 in French. Halfway through the afternoon he treated us to a long rant on his political thoughts - apparently all the problems in the Canary Islands are due to immigrants from Africa. They did not take us back to our hotel where they had picked us up.

The driver was overly aggressive and retaliated against other road users when they upset him. he overtook cyclists on blind harepin bends. The guide kept informing us he was a good driver, but he managed to scare us to the point that we forfeited our trip the following day.

My advice is avoid this company at all costs

We went on the Gran Canaria Highlights tour and had a great day, the guys running it clearly know their stuff.

Why pay more for the same thing with other companies!?
