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

Imagining a tourist destination in Gran Canaria, not many visitors would think of Telde. It is the second city of the Island, the fourth of the archipelago and it appears to us rather as an enclave of large productive and commercial estates.
The municipality is an obligatory point of passage for those who travel between the capital and the tourist areas in the south, as well as for those who arrive by plane, as the Gran Canaria airport is located there. Even so, there are very few who stop in this interesting city.
However, Telde preserves a historical ensemble of prime importance and great beauty, through which this route is developed that aims to outline the profile of the Canarian identity. The Barranco Real de Telde , inhabited since pre-Hispanic times, preserves the traces left over the centuries by generations of men and women. Due to its importance in the history of the island and the richness of its archaeological, ethnographic and historical heritage in general, it is the ideal place to discover some of the features, institutions, traditions, as well as gastronomy, economic activities, landscape and territory that define the Canarian culture.
The inhabitants of Tara and Cendro , two of the most famous aboriginal sites on the island, the Castilian noblemen who founded the neighborhood of San Juan, the workers of the humble and picturesque neighborhood of San Francisco, or the mysterious Inés Chemida, daughter of a noblewoman Aboriginal and a Castilian captain, will be some of the characters that will ideally accompany us on the visit.
