We eventually left to go on this Safari Jeep tour and straight away we felt like sardines as we were packed at the back facing each other looking sideways to the front. The driver never said a single word and never once helped us in or out of the jeep - as we are in our 60s it would have... More

We took this safari on March 15, 2017. Do NOT buy the video from the trip. The trip itself was good, and we bought the video from that trip for our memories. When we received the USB stick for the video, it would not play, getting error msg of 'corrupt or damaged file'. I sent several emails to them requesting... More

Not the off-road tour but a trip into the mountains visiting villages and other places of interest. I traveled in a convoy of four minivans with plenty of room for everyone. Taken to fantastic view points even got to see Mt.Teide across in Tenerife. Stopped of in a mountain village for a 3 course lunch which was excellent and included... More

Really enjoyed the jeep ride in to the hills of Gran Caneria, the tour guide was great at pointing out all the areas of interest and local sights. Great fun and a great way to experience a bit more of the local culture

We've done plenty of jeep safaris so we were looking forward to this...a half hour delay at the start was disappointing but it went from bad to worse. Childish, immature behaviour from the guides and why was the continous honking of the horns so necessary? Total disregard to other drivers (we stopped counting how many wingmirrors we hit), general heckling... More

The actual tour is great due to the fantastic natural resources in the area. The off road section was exciting and just the right length. The views were stunning. The drivers were competent and pretty much silent though previous responses explain that this is to enable them to concentrate. Fair comment. At stops they stood in a huddle seeming bored.... More

We are unable to do this excursion because of a medical reason - cancer - and informed this company by email 2x to please cancel our excursion and reimburse us since our trip was scheduled in 5/2017.

You never said anything in his reasons that the cancellation was due to illness, said no reason. And now ... says Cancer? I think you are acting very badly in this regard. Paypal knows that you have no disease because you did not say anything like that, I do not present a medical certificate, much less said the word Cancer.... More
