  • Nice experience! I was there with the family last week, to walk around the park in peace it takes about 1 1/2 hour. The pyramids can be seen along the way and up close.

  • Unfortunately, we have to say here that we would have expected more for the rather expensive entrance. Pyramids in the Canary Islands... that sounds great... But in the end a lot of information gets on display boards, these are often there several times, there are hardly any real shows and a few stones stacked as pyramids... yes you can have a look. But every extra area has to be paid extra, as well as the audioguides... If you have ever seen pyramids no matter where, you don't necessarily have to come here. It is also little known, there are hardly any parking spaces and you had a bit of the impression that you are a bit annoying at the entrance. It is nice that there is such a thing in Europe, but there is still a lot of presence, performance and enthusiasm to be done.

  • Beautiful scenery all around! It's very hot so make sure you are ready. Lovely for a walk around the beautiful gardens and the pyramids!
  • Loved it but so much to see. Should have tried to book a guide and gone by private transport rather than booking a tour. Also, the for guide, on the bus, had loads to say to the Spanish speakers but not much for the British etc. The guide at Guimar was EXCELLENT! She really knew her stuff! Could happily have stayed at least twice the 2 hours allowed.
