  • Beautiful scenery all around! It's very hot so make sure you are ready. Lovely for a walk around the beautiful gardens and the pyramids!
  • Loved it but so much to see. Should have tried to book a guide and gone by private transport rather than booking a tour. Also, the for guide, on the bus, had loads to say to the Spanish speakers but not much for the British etc. The guide at Guimar was EXCELLENT! She really knew her stuff! Could happily have stayed at least twice the 2 hours allowed.
