Great Value.

Booked with Simon today, it was fantastic!
He came to pick us up at 9 on the dot as planned, very punctual indeed. From there we proceeded up the country to the outback as such. I was amazed at how well learned Simon was about the island. He pointed out loads of different things, why and when they were built, how they worked. Then as we proceeded to the volcano site he talked about the environment, how it has evolved to it’s present conditions, and what effects that the weather conditions had on the different rocks. I was fascinated by how detailed he talked about plants and rivers that exist. Yes, rivers in particular times of the year. The guy is encyclopaedic of Fuertaventura.
Thinking of a guided tour? Think no more, this is your guy.
Merci beaucoup Sir.

Great excursion !
Jul 2019 • Family
We had a half day tour with Simon in the first week of our stay in Lajares. We are so glad we decided to book as the tour was excellent and a great way to see the island. Simon was a great guide and very knowledgeable along with being really chatty and friendly . Included in the trip is lunch which is taken with fantastic views and very tasty, homemade by his wife/girlfriend.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this trip.

What an amazing day we have had with Simon today exploring and learning about the island,whilst having fun. Simon is a source of information with knowledge about virtually everything and it was a pleasure to be in his company.

Being a family run business our experience was truly authentic and intimate. A fabulous lunch was kindly made, thank you Melissa which was enjoyed overlooking spectacular views.

Thanks again Simon for a wonderful day and sharing your love, passion and knowledge of the island.

We highly recommend this trip, book it you will not be disappointed. 👍😊

Fab half day tour
Apr 2019 • Friends
This tour was well worth it. A group of six were met by Simon near our villa. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the island in general. He knows so much about the volcanoes, and their history and all the flora surrounding them. We had a good climb to the top of one too but that was optional. We could have waited in his land rover if we’d wanted. He took us for the best coffee house in town and provided us with a good healthy lunch. It really was a very good morning spent in his funny engaging company

Amazing experience!
Feb 2019 • Couples
Last week I stayed in Fuerteventura with my boyfriend. We decided to book the Cross Island trip to get know better the island. And... it was wonderful!!! Simon is amazing - he knows so much about the island, geology, climate. He literally can answer you any question.
The trip is very interesting and you can see the real beauty of the island. You will have a homemade lunch in the best possible spot. And the way Simon shows the island is amazing. You know that you are on the trip with the guide but it doesn't feel like that. You feel like being an explorer.
Totally recommend this!!!!

Chance to get to know the real island...
Feb 2019 • Family
Simon took us as a family of 4 for a half day trip which was interesting and very enjoyable. We got a real insight into the geology, culture, nature and history of Fuertaventura and the formation of the Canary Islands. There were stops along the way to get out and walk (volcano crater, beech, viewpoints) and a nice sandwich lunch was included. I really recommend this trip early in any stay on the island to get a feeling for what makes the island ‘tick’.

This trip gave us some great facts and detailed information about local history and
geographical features. We had a great time, learnt lots and the coffee stop and food were both delicious. A great way to end 2018! Thank you Simon for a great morning!

If you only do one activity then do this!

A brilliant way to learn about what may seem to be a boring dusty barren landscape. There is so much to learn about this island and Simon is so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and engaging. Plus his partner Melissa packs a fantastic lunch as part of the deal! Even if you spend the rest of your holiday on the beach or by the pool - take a day or even just half a day to explore with Cross Island - it’s well worth it. Our 9 and 7 year olds loved the excitement of climbing up into a volcano and the crazy bumpy jeep ride along riverbeds!

What an amazing trip! Highly recommended
Oct 2018 • Family
From a simple booking experience by emailing info@crossisland.es through to being picked up at our villa we couldn't ask for a better trip. Simon is friendly and knowledgeable - our day started off-road then walking to the crater of a local volcano before more off-road to the beautiful west coast then back inland to a great viewpoint for a lovely lunch. Couldn't ask for a better day for all ages (from 8+ in our case). Lovely to support a small family venture and was great to get off-road and away from it all. We saw great scenery and lots of wildlife on our tour. Simon made the day very informative and enjoyable. Thank you Simon.

Fabulous road trip and discovery of the island
Jul 2018 • Couples
Simon gave us an incredibly insightful and fun tour. We learned so much about Fuerteventura and the life and land, which made us appreciate the island better.
We also understood the volcanoes and landscape differently after the tour because we were able to understand what we were seeing.

Simon has lived in Fuerteventura for 11 years and knows the island very well. His knowledge about the fauna & flora made the tour very entertaining.

Simon is a very friendly and easy person to speak with, he took us at his village to get a coffee at the local bar and introduced us to the Fuerteventura life style.

The most beautiful landscape we have seen was at the end of the tour, and we enjoyed having a nice and relaxing lunch enjoying the beauty of the viewpoint.

We highly recommend this tour!
