  • 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.
  • Not that much history, but if you like to know more about Thor Heyerdahl and his ideas than it is a must to go. I found it quite interesting to learn a lot about local plants and development in the past.
  • A fascinating visit. This place is as much about the life and adventures of Thor Hyerdal as it is about the canarian pyramids- I was totally captivated. Well worth a visit.
  • The pyramids are amazing to look at and is worth a visit if you are into ancient history and pyramids around the world.
