This was my last stop in a month long journey through Spain. I was only in town for two days but they turned out to be very memorable. I booked the tapas tour to acquaint myself with the area and the local vibe. I arrived to the meeting point and Anula was there to greet me. She let me know it would only be the two of us due to a last minute cancellation. She was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and answered my every question. In terms of the food.... come with an appetite. This tour does not disappoint with food, drink or history of the islands. She suggested I visit a winery/ coffee plantation in the small town of Agaete. I had no plans the following day so I went. It was a lovely place to visit and the town is charming with a nice beach. It was a perfect day trip. No doubt I would highly recommend the tapas tours and you will be very pleased to have Anula serve as your guide.
