This tour was focused primarily on the works of a local artist, Cesar Manrique. We visited most of the artists works on the island. Jose loved the originality of the artist and so did we. The island was beautiful and doing it with Jose was a highlight for our entire vacation. He also took us to a local restaurant and we had a wonderful lunch. All in all-a great tour.

Lee SheldonUnited States
Our group of 4 went on a nice volcano hike. I had a backpack with me (which he didn't want me to leave in the car because of possible theft) and he graciously carried it for me during the hike. When one of us was uncomfortable with all the walking, he changed the tour and brought us to a great winery. Jose was very enthusiastic and loved talking about his island. We found him extremely interesting. When I left my Ipads in his car by mistake, he brought them all the way back to our ship from his home.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eleonor, many thanks for your kind words. All the best, Jose
Darryn WolffSan Francisco, CA, United States
Lanzarote is absolutely amazing. Out of all the Canary Islands our group liked this one the most. José only made this better with his knowledge and passion for the area and history. He was an absolutely wonderful guide and I would highly recommend him to be a guide for other groups. He went with the flow of the group and we truly appreciated him for that. The winery he took us to was absolutely amazing!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Darryn, many thanks for your warm words, I really appreciate them. It was my pleasure to spend the day with such a nice group of people. I hope we meet again soon. Best regards, Jose

Sondra EttlingerUnited States
Jose was injured just before our tour and asked if his assistant Raquel could fill in. She did and she was a wonderful guide. Knowledgeable, and very good at pacing the several stops. Our time in port was short and she was excellent at filling our needs with the most important information and site visits. The van was also large enough that we had plenty of room which we appreciated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Ettlinger, thank you very much for your kind words. I am glad to know that Raquel met your expectations. I hope to see you soon in a near future. Kindest regards, Jose

Jose is absolutely one of THE best tour guides I have ever had. He has an intense passion for Lanzarote (its geography, its history, its people and its culture). And, his passion is infectious. Jose is funny and kind, and he spends every minute that he has with you enthusiastically sharing his passion in a way that makes you want to move to this island and become his best friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, thank you very much for your warm words, I really appreciate them. It was my pleasure to spend the day with you and Josh and I hope to see you again in Lanzarote. All the best, Jose.
Paul CockertonUnited Kingdom
Jose was an informative and entertaining host. Everything was seamless - from the pick up at our hotel, to tailoring a tour for us (and no queues!), the wine tasting. Everything was great and if I ever come back Jose is going to be my first port of call. Paul Cockerton
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, thanks so much for your warm words. It was my pleasure meeting you and I hope we see each other again. All the best and Merry Christmas!! Jose
Christine SkrotskyUnited States
Jose made our day on Lanzarote very special. Over the course of the our one day in port we were able to enjoy the national park and the amazing surrounding scenery, stop at a winery, have lunch in an extraordinary restaurant and tour the unique Manrique Foundation. Jose and his driver gave us a day filled with wonderful memories. The tour was personalized and worth every penny. We highly recommend spending the day with Jose.

Martin JohnsonUnited Kingdom
Brilliant! Jose was a fantastic tour guide. He looked after our family extremely well adapting the tour to meet the needs of our 4 children aged 6 to 16. Jose packed the tour with information in a fun, friendly and practical way you wouldn't get on a public tour. The tour itself was great with every bit being as interesting as each other - the national park is stunning, the walk in to a volcano interesting, the camels great fun, the winery tasty and the green lagoon a one-off! Would highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Johnson, thank you so much for your warm words. It was a pleasure to spend the day in your company. All the best, Jose

Jose has been a fantastic guide for the afternoon Fire Mountains tour. We needed a flexible and personalised tour for a group of 6, and Jose made all of our wishes possible and has even organised a restaurant with breathtaking sunset view for us to have dinner at! I would highly recommend Jose, not only because of his professionalism and flexibility, but also because of the passion he has for the island, and the Fire Mountains in particular. It was truly a wonderful evening for all of us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nataliya, thank you so much for your warm words. It was my pleasure meeting you all. I also had lots of fun in the company of your family. Best wishes, Jose

We enjoyed our tour with Jose very much. He took us on a tour of the island showing us very interesting sights and beautiful views. Jose was friendly, knowledgeable and a very pleasant young man. He gave us more of his time than was required to show us this interesting location We recommend Jose as an excellent tour guide and give him a 5 out of 5 rating My husband and I will definitely use Tourbylocals when we visit a new destination.The guides are of a very high standard.

Nancy D.United States
The tour with José was a highlight of our 6 weeks trip to the Mediterranean. He loves the island,and it shows. His English was excellent, the vehicle roomy and very clean. The tour gives you a great sense of the island, from the fantastic views as you ascend Timanfaya to the coastal towns. Jameos del Agua is like nothing I've seen before. Walking through his hometown was an unexpected delight. Seeing how they cultivate the grapes for wine on the island was also very educational. José is great!
Lesley C.Ocala, FL, United States
I wish that I could give José 6 stars! What an outstanding day and what a beautiful island. José made sure we saw the best of everything and his enthusiasm for his island was contagious. José has a unique understanding and perspective and he is extremely personable. He made everyone feel at home and we had such a great day. This was the best tour I've ever had with TBL.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Casey, I really appreciate your kind words. One of the best things of my profession is to share time with people from all over the world and to see them happy among us. It is very rewarding. I hope to see you again back in Lanzarote. All the best, Jose Luis PD: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!

John CaseyUnited States
We have traveled extensively throughout the world, and Jose is without a doubt the best tour guide we've ever had (and we've had great guides!). The itinerary was actually more than he promised, and he even adjusted on short notice to include one more family. What is so special about Jose is his extensive knowledge of and passion for Lanzarote. His excitement and enthusiasm were contagious, and we all fell in love with Lanzarote! He provided an excellent tour and maximized our time for a ship port stop.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dears Mrs & Mr. Casey, thank you very much for your kind words, I really appreciate them. I believe that the most important thing for a touritst guide is to see that our clients are satisfied and happy. This is very rewarding for us. I hope to have another opportunity to meet you again. All the best, Jose
A born guide! We wanted a customized tour to cover Timanfaya, Jameos del Agua, Haria, La Geria, and Mirador del Rio. We booked full day because we did not want to rush. At the end, we took 7h and also managed to visit Lanzarote Retreat on short notice. We were 5 adults, travelling in a minivan, which was in very good condition. One member of the group was slightly handicapped at walking and received a lot of help from Jose. We had a great day with plenty of laughter and learned a lot about Lanzarote.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bianca, thank you very much for your kind words and let me say that I´ve also had a great day in your company. I hope I see you again in Lanzarote, maybe for a gastronomic tour!!! Please say hello to your family. All the best, Jose Luis
Audrey DollingerUnited States
Although we did not have Jose as our tour guide, Nieves was his substitute and she was fantastic. Her english was very good and easy to understand. She had a lot of personality and was very eager to make sure that we had a memorable tour. We visited all of the sites that we had requested and she made a wonderful choice for us to stop for lunch. We loved having her and our driver join us at lunch. Truly one of our best tours of our trip. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Dollinger, thank you very much for your kind words i will pass them to Nieves and I hope to have another chance to meet you. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year Jose Luis
Jon DuckettUnited Kingdom
FANTASTIC TOUR - PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. Jose is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Lanzarote & geology of the volcanoes, his English is perfect and he is great company (our kids 8&10 loved him too). He is passionate about Lanzarote and rightly so, it's amazing. The volcano hike was incredible we learnt and saw so much it was the best day of our holiday by far. If you go to Lanzarote and don't do this you are missing something really special!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr & Mrs Ducket, thank you very much for your kind words, it is very rewarding to read such a comment. It was my pleasure and I´m happy to know that you and your family had a great day. All the best, Jose Luis
Our tour with Jose Luis in Lanzarote with 14 from our cruise ship was excellent. Our bus was a 16 seater so we had lots of room, our driver was professional and careful, and our tour guide Jose wonderful. He gave us good background detail of everywhere we visited. We went to Timanfaya National Park which we all agreed was spectacular, a beautiful old winery, Las Nieves viewpoint for 360 * views, lunch at a local restaurant and Jameos Del Agua was beautiful and another highlight. Highly recommended tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. & Mr. Adams, thank you very much for your comment. It is very rewarding to see that my clients have had such a nice experience. Yours sincerely, Jose Luis

Excellant tour! José Luis greeted us promptly as we got off the cruise ship and walked us a short distance to his waiting van - which was incredibly clean and comfortable - including water and snacks. The actual tour encompassed more than we had anticipated, was extremely informative, and offered with much local insight in perfect English. We highly recomend him!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Musci, thank you very much for your review. It is very rewarding when you see people happy and satisfied. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for you and your family.
