  • Interesting walk. We have not opted for the visit of the "Easter Island" part and have limited our visit to the site of the pyramids and the garden of poisonous plants. The indications are not in french but at €2 audio-guide (predict a €20 deposit in cash at the entrance... we were 2), there is no reason to make the economy. The visit is well-organized because the comments and explanations go far beyond the simple presentation of the site and we thus discover the history of the Canary Islands with points of comparison with other sites, such as those of the Mexico. Negative point: the numbering of steps for the audio-guide is sometimes amazing, but we made it. Overall, a nice cultural sprain of the order of 1 1/2 hours.

  • Is a visit cultural interesting. Two pavilions contain exhibits on Heyerdahl and models of their boats and a boat Ra II life-size reproduction. Objects related to different cultures of the world, including a specification of a Mayan sacrifice and a representation of the juego del palo canario by two Guanche wax sculptures are shown in several rooms. But all are reproductions, not original. Entry costs € 11 per person + 2.50€ of the audio to find out what you're browsing. It has an area of Botany and the pyramids if (which is the more interesting).

  • My husband is interested in the work of Thor Heyerdahl, we were even in Kerchike-Savrove (Rostovskaya OBL.) ... So visit kompoeksa for us was a mandatory program))) so the tickets are three kinds: full 18 euro with poisonous plants and even some Museum, 16 euro without poisonous plants, 11 euro-only Park. Be sure to take your audioguide, broadcasts in Russian. It costs 2 euros and 20 euros bail, bail will be returned on leaving the complex. We took one audioguide for two and, standing beside, all is well. We were wondering exactly due to such support. Pyramids are also interesting. As it was possible to achieve such smooth ends and corners in stone, and lay them so that the stick between them is not prosnut'! Again, don't expect WOW from visiting. Yes, the pyramid can be seen from the street and someone may suffice, but those people who want to know something about smel'chake-traveler, which Reed boat passed several thousand kilometers, it will be interesting and informative. I admire his courage and expeditions, which he made. Poison Garden was interesting for me, too, because I did not expect such unattractive to look at plants can be dangerous. And so much more can be found in the parks! Prices are inflated (IMHO)! I believe that it is possible and necessary to make them more affordable for tourists!

  • Interesting theory questioning when old poblations actually started crossing the Atlantic, that they show you on video. Impressive amount of plants from Canary Islands at the archeological site. Way too expensive for what it actually offers.
  • Yes, there are piramides in Tenerife. While not as famous as the ones in Egypt or South Americe they still offer a good experience. There is even an inside cinema with a short documentary explaining about the origin of these.
  • Entrance for the pyramids was 11€ in 03/2016 and 18€ for all three exhibitions. This is a ridiculus price for what you can see.
  • Very interesting. Changed my view of the pyramids. If this was done by farmers, they must have been highly knowledgeable about pyramid building principles.
  • The pyramids were interesting to visit and an unexpected and intriguing find... If any of it is actually real.
