Welcome to Gran Canaria!

Since the arrival of the first inhabitants to the Canary Islands, our land has been a land of hospitality; where all people feel welcome. The Canary Islands, the Fortunate Islands, represent a paradise where spring never ends, a place where volcanoes, the ocean and the wind have created a unique environment and landscape. In the Canary Islands you can not only enjoy paradisiacal beaches, but also volcanic landscapes, thermophilic forests, deserts, high mountains and deep valleys, typical villages in which our culture and traditions are still preserved. But also of our gastronomy so characteristic: papas arrugas, gofio, fish… Our music and our instruments, our artistic expression. We canaries feel lucky to live in this land that gives us our identity and our most representative characteristic: friendliness and joy.

Gran Canaria: the miniature continent

Gran Canaria undoubtedly stands out among all the other islands for the variety of its landscapes and climates; also for the enormous historical, cultural and archaeological heritage it possesses. Indeed, we have to point out that 56% of the territory is considered a biosphere reserve; as well to having one of the most important UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world, with an area of ​​almost 10,000 Ha.

There are many ways to discover Gran Canaria; and it literally takes a lifetime to get to know all its corners and secrets. For example: You can relax on our golden sand beaches, walk through the kilometers of dunes in Maspalomas, enjoy a family day in Mogán or Amadores, or water sports in Puerto Rico. If you like urban plans, a visit to Las Palmas is essential. You can enjoy a rum tasting in Arucas, or discover the only coffee plantation in Europe in Agaete.

And, of course, you must discover the inland of Gran Canaria: Roque Nublo, emblem of the island; Pico de las Nieves, the highest point; the Tejeda basin, the most spectacular volcanic landscape in the archipelago; inland towns such as Artenara, or the midlands in San Bartolomé de Tirajana or Agüimes. And of course, our impressive archaeological heritage, Risco Caido, la Fortaleza, the troglodyte habitats that are still preserved; Learn about the fascinating history of the ancient Canarians and their surprising legends.

Really special tour! The tour is highly recommended! On the Saturday there was actually no possibility to do the tour, but Juanjo and Inés converted it so that we could come along! Juanjo and Inés are super friendly, tell you everything about the places you visit and make it a special day. You can tell they do this with a lot of passion!

Lovely day We enjoyed every moment of our trip last Saturday. Every view was stunning and Juan and Inez made it a fun, playfull but interesting day. We would definitely recommend this tour, but wouldn’t with (small) children because of the long day and walk.

Excellent private tour *** The BEST day of our holiday *** I am going to begin this review with my feelings when we pulled up at our hotel at the end of the day. I was disappointed. Disappointed that our wonderful day had come to an end! My husband our three children and I spent the day exploring all the incredible things Gran Canaria has to offer with Ines and Juan. They picked us up at our hotel entrance at 9.00. They were there on time waiting for us. Their car is immaculate and very comfortable and our tour was tailored to our needs. We first drove to the Gran Canaria mountains, stopping in Degollada de la Yegua and Santa Lucia Valley which both have spectacular views. Then we drove on to Tunte (a traditional Canarian village) where we walked around with Ines who taught us about the history of the island - from the architecture and traditional building methods to the ancient religions and beliefs of the first Canarian settlers. We also had a delicious homemade Canarian snack here which we all really enjoyed. Then we drove on to Presa de los Horno. We stopped for lunch at the Biosphere Reserve and Ines and Juan made us a beautiful homemade Canarian meal made with local products. They catered to our specific requirements and produced a luxury lunch for us washed down with an excellent bottle of Rioja and local honey rum! After lunch we went to Pico de las Nieves , the highest point in Gran Canaria and then to Caldera de los Marteles - a volcanic crater - which is very interesting to see up close. We then drove to Agüimes (the village of craftsmen) which was beautiful and not touristy. We had a coffee and ice cream in a traditional bar. Then we then drove to the east coast where we discovered how windy it is there! And finally to the Maspalomas Dunes which look like a mini Sahara desert in Gran Canaria! They drove us back to our hotel and we arrived at about 6:30pm. Every minute of the tour was interesting and fun. Ines and Juan were such excellent guides and entertainers. They kept us all happy and laughing all day which is all the more impressive with 3 children. We covered a lot of ground, saw so many things and learned so much but it wasn’t a tiring day. It was fun, fascinating we were all sad when it was over! We highly highly highly recommend SKY REBELS!

Amazing experience with the most perfect local guides We booked the Unesco tour of one day. What a great experience! Juanjo and Inés are wonderful people, fun, caring and they have such a great knowledge that they want to share with you. You discover the canarian history, culture and important facts. You go to places no other tours or public go. And ofcourse there is Lupita, a fun personal touch for the kids. For lunch we had a homemade picknick (made by Inés with love, excellent chef) with local ingrediënts and fruits, all traditional food. We were so amazed by the tour and this lovely people that we immediately booked another tour, the Barranco de las vacas. Then we visited the Salinas and also a real cave. There we enjoyed a magnificent view and some local food (once again thanks to the chef) during a rest inside the cave. Again an unforgettable experience. If you are looking for the perfect local guides who are passionated in what they do, Juanjo and Inés are just perfect! We had an unforgettable experience!

Descubriendo los orígenes de Gran Canaria He realzado las dos excursiones que duran un día con Sky Rebels, ambas se complementan a la perfección, una centrada en la naturaleza de la isla y otra en la historia de la isla, sin solapamiento en las zonas visitadas. Ambas excursiones muy recomendables

Excursión bien planificada, puntual y profesional para adentrarte en la historia de Gran Canaria Una excursión muy recomendable para entender la historia de la isla. Inés y Juanjo conocen muy bien los rincones de la isla y te hacen sentirte en familia. Comer de picnic con ellos es un lujo. Muy atentos y profesionales. Muy recomendables.

Great tour, yummy food away from the touristy beaten path. This was our third excursion with Sky Rebels and it took us to some genuinely local places that tourists don't usually get to, and we were blown away. Let me say that I usually try to book things with different tour guides wherever I go so I can get the most out of my stay but from the get go we all loved Juanjo and Ines and decided to stick with them. And I’m so glad we did, they know their stuff and go out of their way to make you feel super welcome and show you unique experiences that most tour places don’t offer. On this tour we visited Ingenio and learned how water was used and what life was like for farmers in the 18th century. Then we were taken to visit an authentic castle built into the rocks by the ancient inhabitants of Gran Canaria. Finally we visited a nice village on the coast where we got to experience the warmth of the people of Gran Canaria away from touristy spots (thank you very much for "la cuchara", mininno!). On all three days we were offered to taste local products which we loved. We will definitely be booking our tours with Sky Rebels again when we are back in Gran Canaria. These guys are awesome, we very highly recommend them!

Visited a beautiful little town in the south of the island. On this tour, Lupita, Juanjo and Inés took us to see Puerto de Mogán and get to know it "like a local". It is a beautiful and very touristy village, but full of secrets and stories that Inés and Juanjo shared with us that few people know about. Afterwards we went to visit Amadores Beach, where they offered us to stay for the rest of the day if we wished (unfortunately we hadn't brought any beach equipment, but the next day we went to spend the day on our own). I recommend bringing your stuff and spending your day there afterwards. Ask them about arranging for this as it is a great way to end the day.

Awesome, fun tour! We did the three excursions that Sky Rebels has to get to know the sites of Gran Canaria in a more personal way, and I am glad we decided to stick with them and do all the tours they offer, it was a great experience. On this excursion we visited the Barranco de las Vacas, a very picturesque place where we were able to take several photos. Then came the surprises, we went on a short walk to some hidden caves that blew us away. Finally we visited a very windy beach where we could see surfers practising windsurfing. It was a great day, no doubt. The tour guides, Juanjo and Inés are super nice and personable and know their Canary Islands history. They made it a very interesting and fun trip for us. Many thanks to Inés, Juanjo and of course Lupita!
