This four-hour tour brings you to the main highlights of Las Palmas in Gran Canaria. The tour starts directly from your accommodation or the cruise terminal, where your private adapted vehicle waits for you upon arrival. You find your driver by the sign he is holding with your name on it. He helps you into the car, and then you are good to go to explore the island.
The first stop of this tour is the Columbus house. Open to the public every day; this mansion offers three exhibition halls dedicated to the history of the Canary Islands and its relationship with America. It is the best place to discover Canarian and American culture before the arrival of Europeans, but also to learn first-hand what life was like for these adventurers and their sea voyages.
The entrance to the Columbus house is not included and needs to be paid on the day.
Your second stop is the Cathedral of Las Palmas, which is located at a lively square in the middle of the center with palm trees on both sides. The way the Cathedral is situated gives the place a lot of allure. Also known as the Santa Ana Cathedral, you will find various religious works of art from artists from previous centuries. Think of José Luján Pérez and José Rodríguez Lozada.
The entrance to the Cathedral is not included and needs to be paid on the day.
Furthermore, during this tour, you see the covered market and the shopping street in Las Palmas. The ‘market culture’ plays a significant role in the entire island group, and the markets in Las Palmas form a vital part of the daily life of the residents of the city. Today is your chance to discover why. Stroll around the market and the charming shopping street. Do some souvenir shopping, have a drink on one of the terraces, and taste local delicacies.
At the end of the tour, your driver and guide brings you back to the cruise port or your hotel.
