Arkeo Tour was born from an idea of a group of youngs from Andalusia and Madrid who loved its History, culture and heritage. Our team is made up of great professionals with extensive experience in managing of tourist groups and cultural visits in different parts of Spain. Most of us have trained on the street, collaborating in different archaeological sites, art galleries and museums. We consider that our land has great heritage and cultural potential that must be valued for both residents and tourists. We do not believe that transmitting our history is bored. We want you to enjoy it. May you live the experience. And that you impregnate yourself with the vestiges of our past. Join this adventure with us!

About the Tour

We believe that none of the 7 great Canary Islands is the same as the other. They have lost towns, bustling cities, ancient customs, exotic flavors, majestic beaches and high mountains. They are, in fact, small continents, so different, so changing ... The Canary Islands can be your favorite destination at any time of the year. The annual average temperature is around 24 degrees. Incredible true? Now you have the opportunity to really get to know Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. On this guided tour we will show you the Casa Colón Museum, the Santa Ana Cathedral, the Episcopal Palace, the Regental House, the Town Hall, the Literary Cabinet, the Pérez Galdós House Museum, Triana street and Pérez Galdós Theater. Do you want even more? We will show you the best places to try some potatoes with mojo picón, fashion stores or where to find the best coves in the capital of Gran Canaria. Reserve your place now and join our local guides on the urban routes that we have prepared for you on the island.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Red t-shirt and umbrella. It's easy to recognize me! In front of the Pérez Galdós Theater, Stagno Square

Muy buen tour. José María es muy cercano y atento. Te resuelve cualquier duda. Personalmente me gustaría un tour más profundo sobre Historia y arquitectura aunque resulte menos “ameno”. Muy recomendable.

El guía bien, explicaciones suficientes y amenas. Los lugares visitados los esperados. Lo peor, tal vez falta de organización. El lugar indicado del encuentro no había nadie. Tampoco estaban con sombrilla roja o camiseta roja. Los encontramos por casualidad.

No lo recomiendo para nada. No son puntuales y el guía dejaba mucho que desear. No conocía bien la historia que contaba y se encallaba todo el rato en las explicaciones. Suelo hacer Free tours en todos los viajes que hago y este ha sido el peor con diferencia.

Response from Arkeo Tour
¡Hola, Eric! Encantados de saludarte. Lamento que hayas tenido esta experiencia. Miguel es guía oficial de Las Palmas y lleva muchos años haciendo rutas en Canarias. De hecho, nos quedamos siempre anonadados con sus explicaciones porque se conoce de palmo a palmo la isla. La versión que él nos cuenta es bien distinta y que tuvo que esperaros a vosotros (no solo él, sino el resto de clientes). Por otro lado, aprovechamos para indicarte que si bien un free tour permite la reserva gratuita a priori, se agradece dejar una propina o retribución a finalizar el tour. Te lo comento porque ellos se dedican a esto y viven de esto, y si todos los clientes hicieran como tú, no podríamos ejercer este oficio. Te mandamos un abrazo y esperamos verte en otra ocasión en Canarias. ¡Saludos!
