f you want to be picked up in the Bahía Feliz, San Agustín, Playa del Inglés or Maspalomas areas, you only need to state the name of your accommodation when booking. Once we know where you’re staying and the day you want to do the excursion, we’ll inform you of the pick-up time at your accommodation.
What’s the best time to do the tour? What does the departure time depend on? Can I choose the departure time?
Throughout the year, we usually depart at 9:00 while at certain times of the year that involve greater demand, we make an additional departure at 13:00. In summer there’s also a third departure in the afternoon.
Therefore, we’ll usually offer you the first departure time, but if you tell us that you want to leave at another time in the comments field of the reservation, we’ll try to place you in that other time slot if that departure is being made and there are seats available.
