Tour: #387308, Natural History Daytrip to the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Maspalomas, Canarias, Spain    view tour
Date: Feb 14/19

Natural history, geology, and ethnography were on our list of requirements and Guillermo's tour exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed his company enormously and he provided an excellent standard of information over a broad range of subjects. He's an enthusiastic guide, excellent driver and a thoughtful host, rounding off a very full day on the spectacular winding roads of Gran Canaria's biosphere reserve with a view of a magnificent sunset at 2,000 metres, over the last redoubts of the Guanche people.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your words! It was such a pleasure to enjoy the beauties of this Miniature Continent with you! But you Still have a blue winged endemic reason to come back! :) Im really glad to read that you enjoyed so much Hope to keep in touch Best regards Guillermo B.

Tour: #387308, Birdwatching Daytrip, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Canarias, Spain    view tour
Date: Jan 29/19

Guillermo is an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable, not only about birds and where to find them, but he was also able to tell us much about the geological and social history of the island. He was very patient when we were waiting for a sighting, and expert at differentiating between similar species. He offers a bespoke service, so that we were also able to see much of the island. He is very friendly, speaks excellent English, and we would certainly book a trip with him again. Gracias, Guillermo!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your words! It was a real pleasure to spend the day with you! I hope to see you again my friends!

Tour: #387308, Birdwatching Daytrip, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Canarias, Spain    view tour
Date: Oct 24/18

Guillermo is an excellent guide. We wanted to see two island endemics, the GC Blue Chaffinch and the Laurel Pigeon. We were lucky with the weather and found our bird targets plus a few more special birds. A short day list but many were 'lifer' species or sub-species - happy customers. We also enjoyed Guillermo's deep knowledge of the island - lots of useful and interesting information. And we were very glad he was driving on some of the narrow roads.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your words! It was a real pleasure to spend the day birding with you! Hope to see you again!

Tour: Gran Canaria: Coast to Summit, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Canarias, Spain
Date: Oct 7/18

Everything we wanted in a tour and more. Guillermo was exceptionally good at educating us about his island in a very compelling way. Just the right mix of facts and stories and we all came away with a heightened appreciation of Grand Canary life and culture. The pace of the tour was just right, with enough time at each stop to do it justice and with a great variety of places visited.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sondra, Thank you so much for those Words! It was really a pleasure to share the beauty of this Miniature Continent with you! I hope to see you again! Best regards Guillermo B.

I flew from Tenerife to Las Palmas for a 1 day tour. The tour guide was Guillermo B. He picked me up at the airport and we started the city tour around 8 am. Guillermo was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and professional. My day went without a glitch, very entertaining and informative dialogue with Guillermo and breathtaking sceneries all day long. I enjoyed the mountains, the city and the small towns all the same. I definitely recommend a tour of this beautiful island!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for those words Zaira! It was a real pleasure to share the beauty of this Miniature Continent with you! I really had the feeling to spend a lovely day! Hope to see you again Un abrazo muy fuerte!

Date: Mar 1/18

We had a superb day out with Guillermo, who was knowledgable in many ways about many things in Gran Canaria. There were 4 of us and he tried to suit the tour to all of us, though it was originally meant to be just bird-watching. We learnt much about geology, the history of the island, the plants, the food, and even some bird-watching. It was an amazing day from 7am till roughly 6 pm and we saw places on the island that we would never have discovered ourselves. Thank you Guillermo!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was such a pleasure to share the day with you guys! Thanks for your words and thanks for trusting me to be your guide! I hope you come back againg to enjoy our blue chaffinch and the rest of the unseen "Miniature Continent" Best wishes!!

He is a deeply knowledgable, passionate, considerate guide and all loved our time with him and his knowledge of the history, original inhabitants, traditions, fauna, flora and so much more kept every member of our family group enthralled. Guillermo adapted our tour to our interests and completed the day with a visit to a wonderful cave restaurant - full of locals not tourists - for dinner. Guillermo brought Gran Canaria to life for us in a way that ensured this tour was the best day of our holiday

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tracey and family! Im so pleased to Read this Words! That kind of reaction is what makes me happy and passionate about my work! I hope to see you again in this Miniature Continent friends!!
