Las Palmas is a fairly industrial city with most buildings built in last 40 years with concrete and blocks. There is a nice beach area Las Canteras with restaurants and bars and an attractive old town area, trouble with bus is you cant see any of it from the bus. Old town area can be walked around in an hour... More

We have nearly always got a flavour of a new city by taking a tour such as this, finding them informative and leaving us with a curiosity to explore more. In Las Palmas the English commentary was poor, lacking in real information and dull. Very bad value.

I'm a huge fan of open top bus tours in terms of getting to know the flavour of a new city. Although we have always flown into Las Palmas, we have never got further than the airport on previous visits. As we were staying in Maspalomas, we bought a combined ticket which included our bus fare to & from Maspalomas.... More

I took the bus tour and listened to the commentary in English. The only good thing I can say about it was that the driver was welcoming and drove considerately. Here are the things I didn't like about the tour: Waiting times: I had about a 30 minute wait before joining the bus at San Telmo Bus Station. Headphones: When... More

We often use the City sightseeing tours and have always been happy. From start to finish this tour was of no value whatsoever. Gran canaria is dotted with little gems. This tour failed to deliver on promoting this Island altogether. We paid £20.00 euros Per head . The women made us feel like a nuisance to even ask for details.... More

My husband and I walked to the marina and was quoted 25 euros for a ticket each. When I went to walk away I was told we could purchase tickets for 20 euros instead if we did not want the tapas and drink so we settled for this option.

Starting from the marina, the first part of the bus route covers some pretty unremarkable parts of town. Mind you, there’s nothing wrong with all those offices, shops and apartments along the roads that the bus meanders. I’m sure they are all perfectly practical and functional for the local populace. But for the tourist looking for some interesting architecture, unusual... More
