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!

Tour description

Discover the history, culture and magic of Las Palmas with an official Canary Islands tourist guide. Walk with us through the most emblematic streets and squares of the old neighborhoods of Vegueta and Triana, and listen to how the echoes of the past still resonate. We have prepared a very special guided tour for you. Together we will learn about the origin of the capital of Gran Canaria and how time has turned it into what it is today: a city full of life, dynamism, and cultural wealth. We will talk about the aborigines who populated these lands, the intrepid Castilian navigators who colonized it , illustrious figures such as Columbus and Magellan who passed through here, but we will also tell you curiosities and anecdotes about the city, what monuments and museums you should visit. Visit us and we will discover its rich gastronomy. Travel with us in time. Whether it is your first time in Las Palmas, or if you are a repeat offender , you cannot miss this tour of Vegueta and Triana.
In addition, we will tell you where you can go to eat delicious typical dishes without spending a lot of money, which shops you can't miss or we will propose leisure plans around the island with exclusive discounts.

Desde el momento en que se presentó y quiso conocer el nombre de las personas del grupo hasta el momento en que se despidió de nosotros dejo ver su gran calidad profesional y personal. Cristina transmite su gran pasión por contar a los demás el fruto de mucho tiempo de estudio y dedicación y le queda redondo. Felicidades Cristina.
