FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We are 2 people and we would like to do a guided tour, is it possible?
We have recently introduced a “small tour” at 11.15 am. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, where our guide explains in Spanish-English and occasionally French the highlights of the banana. It is very entertaining and fun, and suitable for all ages. The duration of this guided tour is approx. 75 minutes. with tasting included.
We do guided tours on other days and times when there is a group of more than 12 people, usually groups of friends, families or companies that request a guided tour for groups at least a week in advance. Guided tours usually start at 10 a.m. and can take up to 2 hours, our guide enjoys count The time for this is sometimes infinite. We often offer the tasting of our bananas at the beginning to recover potassium and tryptophan and to have the body and mind more relaxed to enjoy the tour.
When we book an individual self-guided tour, what does it mean?
The individual self-guided tour allows you to do the tour at your own pace, reading the information you will find along the way. There are 8 stops or stations and at each of them we tell different aspects of banana cultivation, they are very didactic and are in 8 languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Dutch, Polish, German, French, Italian and Spanish. This visit is more economically priced because it is self-guided, not guided, although when you arrive at the farm we welcome you and explain the tour to you. At the end of the walk you will find EL CUARTITO and there, in the shade of the “manguero” we will have a small tasting of banana and gofio products. First Tasting at 10.30 a.m. Second Tasting at 11.30 am. Third Tasting at 12.30 pm. We recommend 1 hour for a leisurely visit. También es posible hacerla un poco más rápido o al revés demorarte mucho más tiempo. We want you to take your time during your visit, observing the details, sharing your impressions or asking us any questions you may have.
Is the route around the farm accessible?
The route is accessible for wheelchairs or people with reduced mobility, the ground is made of earth and pebbles. There are no ramps or inaccessible spaces. The route is not long and you will be able to find several seats for a break. At the end is the bathroom and the degustation area. The tasting area is located outdoors under the shade of a 40 year old hosepipe and sheltered from the rain with a roof of banana leaves, next to the old tool room of the farm EL CUARTITO, which has been fitted out as a space for rest, workshops, tastings, exhibition and shop.

The bunches The average weight of the banana pineapples on our farm is 50 kgs, with specimens weighing over 70 kgs. In each bunch we can find between 200 and 250 bananas, but we never really count them. What’s in a pineapple are the banana hands, which are usually between 13 and 17 hands. And what is packed in boxes for distribution is half of each hand, i.e. a handle of bananas.
Are there discounts for residents, siblings, associations or educational centres?
We are particularly sensitive to our environment and therefore facilitate the arrival of Canarian residents and social groups. We want to be a place to visit that is accessible to all audiences and pockets. For them we have established different discounts. Contact us.

We have a rustic style unisex restroom next to the tasting area, accessible to people with reduced mobility. The parking area is located to the left of our entrance as you drive in, just 50 metres away. Special care should be taken when walking from the car park as the route runs along a busy road, especially when accompanying children by the hand.
