Carlos is a great guide. Funny. Energetic and took us to all the great places. But he really let himself down by pushing lunch at a great restaurant on the way in the middle of nowhere.

It's clear I there is some incentive being given to the tour company / Carlos to take us to bar vallesco. A lovely 3 course meal for 10.5 euros is insulting and really took the shine off the day. I am so incensed at having being duped that I am writing this as soon as I have get back.
We were clearly just there to be fleeced. A 99p hamburger would gave been better. Pack your own lunch or go to a spar in teror which is the previous town.

Veg soup which had random chicken
8 chips and a awful fish
Dessert was a banana or 20 p little frozen mousse.

Not happy bug wanted to warn everyone else not to have lunch.

I'm reviewing the Lanzarote tours, which I think are new - it may be that Trip Advisor wants to move these to a different page, but it is the same business.

We did two trips - the Grand Tour and Cesar Manrique, with our two-year old, and I can't recommend them highly enough. The guides on both days were extremely helpful and knowledgable and the attractions were all definitely worth visiting. There was one point of overlap - the Jameos del Agua, which we didn't mind seeing twice, but others may want to make sure they do the Cueva de los Verdes on the Cesar Manrique tour to avoid doubling up (if they do both trips - we couldn't do the Cueva with a small child).

Highlights - the Timanfaya national park was definitely one of the outstanding points of our holiday on Lanzarote. On the Cesar Manrique trip the Jameos was probably the best bit, though Mirador del Rio wasn't visible the day we went (misty) so I can't comment on that. Jardin de Cactus was also very good.

The lunch is good value, so buy the inclusive ticket would be my advice. And do the camel trip on the Grand Tour.

Coach picked us up on time, driver and guide very friendly. Took ages picking up from loads of other hotels. There were only three stops during the day and we felt very rushed, maybe because so long had been spent picking up? First part of tour is through the mountains on narrow VERY winding roads so wouldn't recommend it if you get travel sick. All in all a good way to see the island but not a relaxing day at all. Also found it annoying that tour guide had to repeat everything in three different languages, got a bit much after 8 hours! Cost 29 euros each.

Not too expensive really for a day out exploring the island....only thing was that all the 'stops' were rather pointless, brief and 'cheap' . We enjoyed the Rum tasting, but the tour around the distillery was over in 5 minutes! We went to two churches - both lovely but rather similar! The weather was bad which may have affected my rating. Lunch was in a very crowded place and if you wanted anything other than a 3 course meal, e.g. soup and roll, the choice was rubbish and not hot!
