Itinerary on the Las Palmas Bus Tour
Once we pick you up from your hotel or apartments we will head over to Las Palmas. When we arrive there, we will start our tour in the historical part of the town, Vegueta. This area is the perfect example of colonial buildings, charming narrow streets, artisanal boutiques and many restaurants.
First visit of the trip will be at Santa Anna cathedral with its beautiful square. Around Santa Ana’s square you will meet the cast iron sculptures of Santa Ann’s dogs – which have become a big attraction of the place. Right next to the cathedral you’ll be able to see the Bishop’s Palace and city hall.
Within a short walking distance we can find the “House museum of Columbus” building that represents numerous aspects of Canarian architecture. The Museum was inaugurated in 1952 and it is open to visitors everyday. It has 13 exhibition rooms and a library.
At this point our guide will give you three options: one is to see the Theatre” Perez Galdos”, visit the local market or enjoy a nice cup of coffee in one of the vibrant pedestrian streets of Triana.
Next, we drive up to Tafira to see famous crater “Caldera de Bandama”- a 200 meters deep volcanic crater with a stunning view of the golf course and its surrounding landscapes.
After, we will head over to another amazing part of our trip to visit the largest botanical garden in Spain called “Jardín botánico de Viera and Clavijo” or Jardín Canario. This big garden has about 23 hectares and you will be able to see almost 570 endemic plants of the Macaronesian region such as dragons, laurisilva, cacti, aloes, agaves, numerous palm trees and many more.
Then, we will return to the capital where we admire the nice views on Avenida Maritima and the third most important port of the Atlantic, The Port of La Luz. Our first stop back at the city will bring us to Santa Catalina Park, a famous meeting point for the carnaval and many festivals and events. This is located just right next to the port and beach.
To fully enjoy this city tour we planned almost 3 hour of free time where each of the guests can decide what to do. Walk around almost 4 km long Las Canteras beach, one of the longest city beaches in Europe. Enjoy some shopping in the biggest city malls Las Arenas, El Muelle and the famous El Corte de Inglés store.
While you are in Las Palmas you can also pay a visit to one of the most spectacular aquariums in Europe, Poema de Mar.
Ticket available upon request with extra fee of 20€ (put information in booking system).
Nice lunch at the promenade along Las Canteras – very vibrant place all day long.
We will be back in the south around 16:30-17:00
