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 present you a totally different route from the ones you can normally find in Las Palmas. A tour full of images, sounds and stories from the past. We present you "Contrasts of the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria". At the agreed time we will take the guagua (bus) to visit the Polvorín neighborhood, one of the first built outside the walls, and the Altavista neighborhood, where we will contemplate one of the best views of the capital of Gran Canaria. We will travel on board through the picturesque streets of Schaman remembering the most illustrious characters of our history and we will continue through Escaleritas, La Minilla and Siete Palmas, to the Puerto de Las Palmas Cemetery. We will visit the area of the famous Alfredo Kraus Auditorium and the most surfing part of Playa de las Canteras to take another bus in which we will visit the lower area of the city and Puerto de la Luz until we reach San Telmo Park and walk through Mayor de Triana street and Alameda de Colón. Whenever tourists visit Las Palmas, the guides show them the same typical places they expect to see; But on this tour we will visit a totally different city: Las Palmas for real. We will visit its cliffs, its viewpoints, its castles and the neighborhoods with more history by public transport. We will explain how its people lived and live, and how the city has grown on the slopes of the mountains. In the second part of the tour we will discover the most classic city, open to tourists with thousands of events that have made it the open and welcoming city that it is today. It is a circular route that will begin and end at the same point. The activity does not include the bus ticket, which will be € 0.70 per person. At all times you will be accompanied by an official Las Palmas guide.
