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

Golden sand, sea breeze, traditional markets and volcanic landscapes await you on this free tour of Las Canteras and El Confital.

You will get to know these two very special corners of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the same day.


We will meet outside the Poema de Mar aquarium to start exploring the north of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

Little by little we will go into one of the most special and least touristy corners of the capital of Gran Canaria , El Confital.


During the free tour, we will walk through this bay located in the protected environment of La Isleta . We will tell you about the origins of these volcanic lands while we walk through one of the largest peninsulas in the Canary archipelago .


We will discover the military uses that the El Confital area has had and we will also learn about the aboriginal past of this place. How was Gran Canaria lived before being conquered by the Crown of Castile? We will reveal it to you!


We will also visit the Santa Catalina park and the promenade of Las Canteras beach while we review the history of this area of the capital of Gran Canaria. We will discover how it has evolved to become one of the most touristic spots on the island .


Our accredited guides, specialists in Historical Heritage, will make you learn, but above all, have fun

Un tour muy agradable tanto por el lugar visitado, uno de los más bonitos de la ciudad y único por las vistas, como por el guía, Carmelo, simpático a rabiar y un apasionado de su trabajo. Una experiencia genial. Recomendable.
