It hasn’t changed in the twenty years or so I have been there. Not the classiest island but like a pair of old carpet slippers!!

Easy access for those who do not want to use excursion service. Beach in walking distance. Local buses close by cheap fares.

Car hire again down to Maspalomas and a walk through the sand dunes to the large beach. After a few pleasant hours we drove up into the hills to visit a recommended “pretty village”. The drive was a bit nerve wracking but scenic however the weather changed on arriving at the village and thick mist and cold temperatures made for a short visit after some well deserved coffee and cake! The weather cleared on the return journey to the port giving great views. Read Less

Made the mistake of taking the HOHO bus tour. As usual most of the audio you could not hear. Also, the bus route did not seem to follow the audio. Gave an overview of the city. I would not recommend taking the HOHO. There is a beautiful ... Read More

I would not recommend taking the HOHO. There is a beautiful shopping mall right next to the port. Also, the aquarium is walking distance to the ship. Read Less

We took the Best of Lanzarote tour offered by NCL. It is an interesting Island. The tour included what I thought was a very good buffet lunch with wine.

There is quite a walk to get out of the port in Las Palmas, and two cruise ships in as well as Balmoral. We have done the bus tour on a previous visit (not recommended, get the public bus to the old town and explore on your own). This time we rented bikes so as to cycle along the port promenade. They had electric bikes and we wish we had rented them as it was very windy and so quite hard work cycling. Hiring was easy, and very reasonable, I think we paid 6 euros per bike for 2 hours hire. Helmets are provided. Read Less

We did a red bus tour here it cost €23 and was brilliant value. We loved the old town and were lucky enough to go up to the cathedral and see an artisan market and street singing. A lovely day.

Port nice and close to City. Nice Prom to stroll, had a good meal at tapas bar in back street, then browsed large City Centre shops.. Most were open, if a little later because it was Sunday.

again just a walk about but the town is right by the port , the market was right near the port so not to much walking needed.
