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

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 begin exploring the northern area of ​​Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

Little by little we will enter one of the most special and least touristy corners of the capital of Gran Canarias .


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


We will discover the military uses that this area has had and we will also learn about the aboriginal past of this place . What was life like in Gran Canaria 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 Gran Canaria capital. We will discover how its evolution has been until it became 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

Aurora ha sido una guía estupenda. He venido mil veces de vacaciones a las Canteras, y no tenía ni idea de la historia que se esconde por todos los rincones. ¡Muchas gracias por 2 horas tan interesantes!
