You can bring your own food or we can make a lunch stop at a cave restaurant with magnificent views over the mountains (lunch not included in the price).

How do I have to prepare?

As this island has a micro-climate we may experience both hot (18*C-25*C) and cold temperatures(3*C-10*C). Thus I recommend bringing both short and long sleeve. Typically a nice warm jacket should be enough it gets colder. Bring sunscreen also. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes (not slippers). In the eventuality of short hikes or walks it is best to wear hiking shoes.

Are the roads very winding?

Yes, most of them are. As the island is quite steep due to its high altitude and small surface, the roads are winding and it is the only way to get to the most beautiful places in the mountains. However if you are prone to motion sickness we can choose an alternative route and customize the day to your needs. Thanks to our experience we can still tailor an amazing journey.

What if I arrive in a cruise ship or ferry?

Please specify the port of arrival as well as arrival and departure time. You will be picked up in the port at the agreed time. The tour duration will be planned accordingly.

what people say about this experience

You must try this tour to appreciate the diversity of the island- just in one day I got to see the weird and wonderful Gran Canaria, with its arid canyons, green balconies, misty mountain tops with horizontal rain and lush herbs, culminating in almost South American like rainforest up North! Disclaimer: do NOT do this on your own. This tour has much to do with personality and you can tell why Sergiu is so successful just by spending a day with him. He is genuinely determined to surprise you by this beautiful island! He has adapted to my needs and personal preferences, thus anticipating what the weather allows on the day and my energy levels. Great communication from the start, timely pick up from my hotel, good restaurant choice with spectacular views AND extra bonus of professional photo album from the trip. Overall, great value for money.

The day out with Sergiu was interesting and was very informative on life in Gran Canaria We spent the day at a leisurely pace which was our preference. We were taken to some more exclusive locations and given some true Canarian experiences as well as the more popular Roque Noblu. (Having a driver who knows the mountain roads definitely helps- checking if we felt ok and supplying water when needed) The added bonus of having Sergiu with his Nikon camera to provide us with a photo album of the day was great and finishing with shots of us on the beach for the sunset was superb.

This was such a magical experience. Sergiu went above and beyond to make my day exploring the island as special as it could be. Every care and attention to detail was taken to ensure I was able to experience a varied and amazing time on the island. I loved being taken to local hotspots off the beaten track and the hike in the forest was the perfect way to end the day. Sergiu is a talented and passionate photographer and the photos were really lovely, such a wonderful memory. 100% would recommend!

Sergiu picked me up from my hotel and we started the tour right away. He has been a resident of Gran Canaria for many years and knows the island like an expert. He shares his knowledge about the island, its microclimate, and history. He is also your photographer for the (Website hidden by Airbnb) need to stress about snapping the perfect picture. I am glad to have done this experience on my last day in GC. I got to see the real island and beautiful views, forests, a local market and restaurant, and not the typical tourist areas. He will customize the trip to your preferences.

Fantastic day, Sergiu was most accomplished in going off the tourist trail & avoiding tours throughout the day. He took you to places you would never have found on your own. Lunch in the most perfect place with a view to be envied & superb food. Brilliant host made you feel welcome & took great interest in the conversation throughout your time together. Combining a exceptional tour with brilliant photos as well. I would highly recommend Sergiu’s tours & I will definitely have another on my next visit. He will ensure you see different parts of the island or taylor make the tour to your requirements. Many thanks for a perfect day with excellent weather too!
