We were 6 of 12 visitors in a minibus, booked with Angela Tejera. She was amazing. Her descriptions and stories showed her love and admiration for her island and its people and history. This volcanic island, with its black soil and craters and amazing way of growing grapes is well worth the visit. Fire Mountain was fun to visit, with the demonstrations of "explosive" fires and self-igniting branches from the intense heat from below, the grills where the restaurant cook their famous potatoes from the natural heat (and where Angela's (our guide) family used to cook their food. The drive around the mountain is spectacular. Even the visit to the winery was worthwhile and pleasant. We visited El Golfo, with its green lake and Los Hervideros, with its jagged coast line formed from volcanic rock.with caves formed by the crashing waters of the Atlantic. Angela dropped us off in the city per our request and we spend a few hours walking around Arricife along the beautiful promonade. We took a taxi back to the port. l Read Less

We booked an independent trip to the TImanfaya National Park with Lanzarote Experience Tours. The itinerary was very similar to the excursion offered by Celebrity from the ship but there were only 16 of us compared with 50+ on the other coach, and we probably paid less too. We had to be off bright and early and our excellent guide Angela was waiting for us. We stopped before the entrance to the National Park for a camel ride - very touristy experience and just a 20 minute trot around the block but good fun and at €12 for two whose complaining. Then it was on to the remarkable volcanic landscape in the park itself - the visitor centre is a bit formulaic but what they show you really explains the terrain and demonstrates how much heat lies just below the ground. I've never seen anything like it. We then travelled down to the coast at El Golfo and its green lagoon and the cliffs at Los Hervideros. Finally we had a brief stop at the winery at La Geria to sample and purchase the local wine before returning to the ship in good time. It would have been nice to have a bit more time with Angela as she was an excellent, engaging and insightful guide, but our time in port was limited. The tour was excellent value for money and we would definitely book another trip with Lanzarote Experience Tours should we return to the island Read Less

Spectacular views, more time on coach to reach the Volcano and restaurant at peak, Camel ride is worth a go, not too scary to get on as your in pairs, hardest part was coming downhill and when camel knelt down to get off. Interesting to see the heat demonstrations with straw burning and water shooting up, then watching as the cooked lunch if you were staying on an open barbecue which was heated by the magma chamber under you.
