Next, take in spectacular views of the island from the cliffs of Famara, Mirador del Río (entry fees included), the island of La Graciosa, and the river, a one-kilometer stretch of sea that separates Lanzarote from La Graciosa. Later, visit the village of Haría, also known as the Valley of The Thousand Palms. Spend the rest of your trip exploring this palm grove oasis and optionally stop for lunch.

The Cueva de los Verdes was impressive. However, we went to Jameos del Agua with high expectations due to its fame, but were a bit disappointed as we expected something more natural. Still they are beautiful. The best thing about the excursion was the guide, who told us a lot of information about everything we saw and its relationship with the work of César Manrique. The food stop is at 12:00 in the only restaurant in the area. It is a simple free buffet (although quite good) for €10/person. You can also take food to eat for free, but there is no option to find another restaurant. As we went with the short excursion (we had already seen the Timanfaya on another occasion), they picked us up halfway and left us at the door of the hotel at 2:00 p.m.

Some of the participants going around the island, the guide offered to join them for 15€ more. This tour was really great for a first day, it gave me a general idea of where on the island I wanted to go back. Big Up to our guide for his permanent good humor and to the bus driver! The transfer is very well organized

The tour included more highlights than described and was a great experience. Highly recommended! For the participants who had only booked the half-day tour, the return transport was very well organized.

Well organized, no waiting times at the attractions. You could walk past the queue with the group! Great guide, the optional lunch is also highly recommended.

Everything worked out great: tour guide very good, bus on time, enough time at the destinations. Always my pleasure!!!
