Great day out to see the live volcano and Lanzarote landscape.
The tour was very rushed and the music was terrible on the bus.
I got very upset at the camel stop.
The camels were all chained up together and being forced to sit in their own urine and poo.
The camels had sores all over their legs.
We took the full day tour in April. In generally it was ok, but... I expected a little bit more of walking in the national park. Basically it was just walking 50 -100 m from the bus and than back. If I could do it one more time I would choose the half day... the lagoon and the Los Hervideros is nice, but nothing extraordinary this were the first two stops. Then we went a bit more to to the national park, via Janubio salt pans but we did not stop there. In the park we went for the optional camel ride 6 EUR/person, and it was truly the highlight of this tour, it was a real fun and experience, I recommend all to take it. After this the bus took us for the wine tasting, the area was lovely, but there was nothing to do, they offered us a little really very little amount, and only one of the dry or sweet wine sample to taste, there was a souvenir shop and thats it. After this the driver took us for lunch in Yaiza, either you could take a lunch in a local restaurant buffet for 8 EUR, it was goof but again nothing really special or you could take your time there, stop was there around 45 -60 mins. After lunch the guide took us again to follow the Route of the Volcanoes. That was really something extraordinary, unfortunately we could get out only in the area of the restaurant and all the rest of the tour was done as a sightseeing bus. To be honest if the last part would not happen, I would be really disappointed. If I can recommend, I would take only half day tour or some other tour where there is more walking in the park.
Organised from the comfort of my hotel room, online, €16 cheaper than the holiday company organised tour, but exactly the same trip.
Very knowledgeable guide. Amazing scenic tour of Timanfaya and te lava fields.
We booked for a full day trip. In the Morning, the bus picked us up at 9 o'clock in Costa Teguise. When we finished to pick up every passangers it was 11 o'clock. This is too long. It was really boring. The organizers should have figure out something for this, because in this way it is terrible.
But after this, the programs were great. We really liked the El Golfo, Los Hervideros and in Timanfaya national park the geothermal demonstration. But for us it should've need more time to take photos and enjoy the places. For us it was rushing.
We've been in La Geria to visit a vinery. It is an unnecessary program and takes too much time. We could see the vineyards perfectly from the bus too. It is only because the travellers should spend money in the vinery shop.
And we hate the lunch. We booked for a buffet lunch for 8 euro/per., but most of the food was made from canned food. It was a big disappointed part for us. We tought we will get some really good pailla or some special Spanish food, but we finally get some . We felt overwhelmed because of this lunch. If someone goes for this trip, choose the lunch from the bar! Or the organizers should find a better restaurant!
The guide was very nice and funny, and he known a lot about the island, it was interesting to listen him. Thanks a lot for him!
A good and varied tour, decent value for money and a much more convenient way of seeing timanfaya than by car. Shame the trip doesn't manage to include the volcano information centre but you can't have everything
Fantastic trip, we did the full day.
This was a pleasant and enjoyable trip. The only thing is you spend an awful long time on the coach. We spent nearly 2 hours on the coach doing pick ups, and drop offs, and people swapped coaches when they were doing different trips. We only had half hour for lunch and 15 minutes in the vineyard, yet as I say, so much time spend on the pick up. Still a nice trip.
This tour was overall great. As other reviews have stated, the winery could have been skipped.
A trip of mixed feelings
First of all the guide and driver were great and the information given about the sights was good. The highlight was of course the visit to Timanfaya which had the wow factor. The visit to the camels also good even if you didnt go on one. I was diasappointed not to spend more time in El Golfo, just enough to go to the vastly overrated green lake and not enough to wander round what seemed to be a pretty seaside village. I was more disappointed with the winery visit which was just a glass of wine, no explanation about viticulture and the opportunity for vouchers for lunch at Yaiza to be sold. The one and a half hour lunch stop because the bus had to do a school run was I imagine a long time for some but a blessing for me. I had decided not to take the buffet lunch in a restaurant used by multiple tours so I was able to walk back to the centre of Yaiza where I had spotted an artisan cafe with some lovely shops. I will say that the price for the tour was good and I guess you got what you paid for.
