“A fantastic day out with Crazy DAVID, it’s a day not to be missed, get in touch with him and he will tailor the day to whatever you would like.”
Lynette Williams and family, Lanzarote residents.

“A day out with DAVID will be a great start to your holiday, he will tailor a brilliant day out. He is a really knowledgeable guide, but he also brings a FUN element to your island tour and he will make sure that you have a great day.”

“A David Day would certainly lift your friends spirits, he is a fantastic positive person and he would be the perfect solution for an enjoyable day out.”
Hazel Taylor-Wheatcroft, Lanzarote resident

“Just a few shots from our David Day yesterday, I’ve lived on Lanzarote for 19 years and saw just a few of David’s secret sites for the first time. A unique experience as the areas we went to are only accessible by a vehicle with special permissions. We learnt more about our lava crust, flora, fauna, and we caught a rare glimpse of a rare bird, and we visited a very special air bubble.
We also saw the villages of Uga and Yaiza (where I have lived for the past 18 years), from a very different perspective.
Highly recommended booking in to see our hidden Lanzarote, untouched by the tourist track. Thank you DAVID Penney.”
Betty Rawson (photographer)

“Got to say that David certainly made our trip to the island an eye opening experience. No holidays since have been the same, we always hire a car and see the local areas.”
Peter Stewart and Sheila, ABERDEEN

“Wow what a day… well a DAVID Day!!
With David Penney showing us all the little beauty spots that are right on our doorstep!! Highly recommend for this family day out. We learnt lots about the island and can’t wait to go exploring again!! Thanks DAVID!!! xx”
Rachel Franklin and Family, Residents

“Hi David,
Just wanted to share our testimonial with you and the wine corking photos. Our Lanzarote adventure truly began when the three of us climbed aboard Crazy David’s 4X4. I don’t think anyone knows the island better than him. Its his home and his playground (as he calls it!). We went on 2 full-day adventures and a half day trip with David. He showed us around the scenic landscapes in the north and south of the island, was a guide in explaining to us about Cesar Manrique’s vision, did one wine tour, and learned a lot about the history, culture, and people of Lanzarote. Ask him anything about the island and he is the Wiki page for it! David didn’t treat us as tourists but as friends. He was very thoughtful in the way he went about the days, telling us and showing us things that he thought would be of interest to us. We learned a lot about picon quarries, wet plants, palm trees, Spanish imperialism in Lanzarote, geothermal activity in volcanoes, protected biospheres, the brilliant mind of Manrique, volcanic vineyards and more. Speaking of vineyards, David also organised a special trip to an organic winery in Lanzarote (Bodega La Querencia) run by Luciano and Rosa where I got to cork and seal my own bottle of wine If you’re doing Lanzarote with David – you’re doing it right.”
Rishika, Sunita, and Vivek from Delhi, India

“Hello David,
We have been home for about four weeks from our short vacation at Lanzarote.

The trip on the island with you was great!

Your knowledge and enthusiasm have given us a completely different view at first glance: arid and boring island.

It was a beautiful day and we learned a lot about the history and the future of Lanzarote
Hereby a few pictures of our private tour around the island.

Thanks to my colleague Eric Loman who provided us with your details and said: “if you want to see the island you have to go with Crazy David.”

Thanks David and maybe see you in the future.”

Jaap and Jose Dorhout, Netherlands

“Our Lanzarote day with David was fun, easy and informative – the best possible shore excursion. We saw some unique sights and amazing scenery, had a little dip in the sea and went wine-tasting at one of the beautiful vineyards on the island. Highly recommended! Thanks!!”

Best regards from US Virgin Islands,
Anne & Matthew and Bunny

“Well that’s Gerry and myself back home from another fantastic holiday on this beautiful island. Depression has now set in but it won’t be long until our return. We have been coming to this island now for over 16 years and this time I decided we were going on a trip. OMG I can not recommend David Penney enough. His knowledge, his witty humour entertained us for 8 hours. What an eye opener. We thought we knew, been everywhere. We know nothing. David had no idea what our interests, where we had been but turned this day into, as Gerry described it”the best day ever”. Here’s a couple of pictures. Everyone’s got to do one of Davids trips. Will be booking again at Christmas and looking forward to next history lesson. Thank you David x”

Barbra and Gerry Mcguire

“My family and I have been coming to Lanzarote now for nine years and love and enjoy each trip more and more. For the past few years we had been meaning to plan a trip to Fuerteventura but it never happened until this year……. we contacted David Penney …… he arranged everything for us. We had nothing to do except to be ready on time. 😄 We got the 9 o clock ferry over. David’s experience of living on the island some years ago was plain to be seen. In the short few hours to the return ferry at 6 we saw so much of this beautiful island. Very different to Lanzarote but a must visit for everyone. Really really enjoyed our day. Thanks Crazy David for another amazing day. 😎😎😎😎”

Claire, Tim, Katie (aka SA), Sean and Jenny (f t b), Dublin

“Hi David, I just wanted to say thanks for the quite phenomenal day you gave us earlier, me and the guys can’t stop talking about it! My favourite was El Bosquecillo, I loved the view and have always wanted to go there. I’m sorry I was fairly quiet, but I spent many hours appreciating the view on the one occasion I haven’t had to be the driver! Thanks once again mate, you’re truly a gem!”
Dave and Julie Glass, Gloucestershire

“Hi David, thanks for a great day yesterday, we truly had a great day, and already taking about the next one…Got to see somethings we didn’t even know existed….some we’d seen before, but from a completely different viewpoint. From a lunar landscape to the desert in 10 minutes…oh and about 100 goats having their daily walk 🙂 it can only be Lanzarote. ❤ Great day DAVID, thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.”
Julie and Alex Limbrick, Lanzarote

“David Penney, our VIP tour. We can’t thank you enough. A true professional. Very knowledgeable but your jokes are crap lol. Certainly we had one of the best days of my life. Cannot express how wonderful this man is at his job . David started the day by spending time asking us what we wanted from our tour. He took us away from the tourist areas as we asked. We got to see the most wonderful beaches. Ate authentic Tapas where locals eat. Spectacular views. And we fell in love with this beautiful island even more. Here’s just a few pictures of our special day, feeling blessed.”
Chris and Mandy Trueman Nottingham

“Spectacular views David Penney, thanks for a wonderful enlightening day out on Tuesday.”
Craig Milnes and friends

“A few photo’s from out and about today. Great day, funny and educational. Every day is a school day even now. A fantastic guide and lovely company helped too. Thanks David, what an awesome day.”
Alan and Hazel Brown, Ayrshire

“Thank you for a fantastic day x”
Karen Greaney, Dublin

“7 friends today had a David day , a last minute decision. We already know the island well as we are residents and property owners. We saw new places, had new experiences, ate tapas in a new to us restaurant.

We experienced rugged coast roads typical canarian hospitality learned about the history of the island and it’s language. This island is a beautiful playground and a day with David Penney helps you discover new places, tastes and experiences. One of the kindest gentlemen I know.

Whatever your age, interest or indeed ability you’ll enjoy a personally uniquely tailored day with this knowledgeable guy. The only thing that’s a little poor, his jokes Straight out of a pound shop cracker!”
Julie and Chris Gregory, Manchester.

“Many thanks David Penney for another fab Lanzarote adventure day – our seventh trip and we can’t believe we are still finding new places to explore on the island.
We’re already looking forward to our next trip….we’ll be in touch very soon!! Thanks again and also to our fellow explorers ( and Jeff and Chris) for making some great memories! X”
Sue and Paul Spedding, Wakefield & Lanzarote.

“Hi David, thank you so much for today, absolutely brilliant, Jeff and I enjoyed it so much. We’re no longer David Penney virgins and we will definitely see you again ! Great to meet you and thanks for your generosity and kindness. Best wishes from us both and Jeff said ps what was the address of that brothel! xxx”
Gill and Jeff Banister, WIGAN.

“Hi David…. thank you so much for a wonderful day… we are all delighted that we saw parts of the island that we didn’t even know existed… the lunch was very special and a real insight into Lanzarote cuisine… again many thanks and we hope to organize another tour on our next visit.”
Stella Brougham, Limerick.

“What a fabulous day we had with David Penney, he took 5 Pensioners on a lovely trip on the Island. Took us to places we didn’t even know, looked after us excellent. We loved every minute. Thank you.”
Pauline and Dave Carter, LANZAROTE

“What a fab day we have had . Awesome.”
Alan and Jackie White. Barnstaple, DEVON

“A David day should feature as part of Lanzarote tourism marketing (dia de David).

This amount of sycophantic crawling should warrant a free una caña from you on our next visit…”
Neil and Suzy Hannabuss, BRISTOL

“Hi David thank you so much for a brilliant day. Many thanks.”
Maura, 4 ladies from IRELAND

“Well, We have had the best time ever with Sarah, Chris, Jacob and Oliver.
We had an incredible activity day out with David Penney, including walking in a volcano, eating lunch in a cool cave and getting to a truck i drive past twice a day. All in all a day that we will all talk about until the next time.”
Karen and Paul Tuck. Arrieta, Lanzarote.

“THANK YOU MY LOVELY. We all had an amazing day CANNOT SHUT JOHN UP lol Thanks again.”
Lyn Robinson, London

“Thanks so much for a fab day out. Kids loved you… It was the highlight of our holiday.”
Bernie Cummings , Liam, Caylem, and Annalese, LIMERICK.

“Spent the day with Crazy David today. The kids haven’t stopped talking about you all evening David Penney. Thank you for an amazing day out, been coming to the island for 30 years and today saw places I didn’t even know existed. My original question to you was, is it suitable for children? in 7 year old Aaron’s words, “that was the best day I ever had”, thanks again, will definitely do it again next time.”
Jayne Beech, Harrow, Middlesex.

“In need of knowing Lanzarote? Are you looking for an adventure? Are you looking for something different? Something crazy, thrilling, exciting and fun? Have no fear, Crazy David is here!

What can I say about my day with Crazy David? My day out with Crazy David was overall amazing. Crazy David took me to places that I have always dreamed of seeing and to places I didn’t believe were real at all…” (read the full testimonial here).

“It’s been a couple of days now since we spent four hours of unforgettable moments in this breath-taking black underworld which you know like it was your home. And still we are so touched by this experience and especially by the encounter with you that we get a warm-hearted feeling thinking at this magic – strangers becoming friends in a lava tunnel.

Apart from the humour, knowledge and safety care you guided us through the dark, we appreciate the change in our Lanzarote feeling you created within a couple of hours: before we met you, we already liked Lanzarote very much. After the time we spent together we felt deeply connected with this Island.

We will take this great memory around the world and will share it in social media as well as in an enthusiastic extended post on letssharedreams.com. Life is just better by knowing people like you.

All the best for your further plans in life! Looking forward seeing you again one day, with a big hugs and let’s keep in touch.”
Kay, Yvonne & Kayleen, Germany

“Fabulous day had by our family of 4 and friends also family of 4 kids ranged from 9 to 4 years old and there was great fun for all involved, highly recommend one of David s days and we will for sure be doing it again, many thanks.”
Lynette Williams, resident

“Absolutely amazing day zip lining. Thank you so much to David Penney for organising it all. Such a laugh. Another adventure ticked off the list.”
Jill Stephenson, resident

“Super duper day zip lining and were all still alive thanks to David Penney who arranged it all ha ha ha, absolutely one in a million adventure, still buzzing with adrenaline!!!!!”
Carla Sylvesta, resident

“My family and I have been coming to this amazing island now for the past seven years. Must admit I was always happy to play Fungi and stay by the pool. However, things were going to be different this year. Saw a post a few months back on FB re Crazy David Penney and decided to book a tour with him. Well David called this morning at ten and really the rest is history. My family and I had the most amazing day of our lives. David insisted on taking us ‘where the tour busses 🚌 don’t go’ and by God he did not disappoint. I could go on for the night but will never forget driving through the desert hanging out of his jeep. Katie Seán Tim Maura and Peter had a most amazing day. His knowledge of the island was second to none. I would have no problem whatsoever in recommending David for a tour of this beautiful Island. He’ll not let you down. It was an unforgettable and one of a kind experience. Can’t wait to do it all again next year… a different experience of course. Thank you David.”
Claire Ralph, Ireland

“We have been coming to Lanzarote for 13 years. Went out with David 2 weeks ago. Great day and we had lunch with the president (well in the same restaurant).”
Robert Hands, England

“It’s the best activity in this island or any other place. Fun-filled, educational and the best memories made. We had a fantastic day again Sunday.”
Elle Andrea, Dublin

“David Penney day is the best entertainment on the island. You wont regret going out with him but you might regret not going early in your holiday so you can re-book a second day.”
Audrey and Katie, Dublin

“Have been twice now and both times were fantastic, David knows lots of hidden gems and is extremely knowledgeable about the island, this is one trip well worth doing.”
Michelle and Paul Steadman, residents

“Well… we had an amazing day today touring around Lanzarote with David Penney!! What an experience! Crazy David showed us all parts of Lanzarote that the tourists wouldn’t get to see! And made us laugh all the way! I would highly recommend families to get in touch with David for a brilliant day out! We made so many great memories and his love for the Island really shines through! Thanks David for an amazing day!”
Tracy Caffrey

“What a great day,highly recommend David Penney for a fun day while finding out all the hidden secrets of Lanzarote also learning to speak Spanish and tasting the beautiful Spanish tapas.”
Tina, Sean, Ryan and Antoinette, Ireland

“Always great fun and fully interesting!!”
Isabelle, Belgium

“Another fabulous “hint of pink ladies day” with Crazy David – touring the wine growing region of La Geria. Loads of information, culture and humour – the girlies loved the wines (most of them !) and I enjoyed the coffee 😜
Well done Kazza for the arrangements, top marks as always to Mr P !! Planning the next trip already
Janet Harper, resident

“Some photos of what was, without a doubt, our best day in Lanzarote. We hired the services of David Penney and his open top jeep for the day. David took us up to the volcano, around some of the unique vineyards, lunch in a non touristy restaurant away from the resorts, visit to an amazing surfers beach, stop off at a goat farm, visit the desert in the middle of the island where the kids (and us) got to run down giant sand dunes and collect some fossilised hornets nests. Then some very bumpy off-roading with the 4 of us standing in the back of the jeep. Kids had a ball. Highly recommend to anyone planning on visiting. Got to see so much of the island.
David just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday and to tell anyone wondering whether to book with you or not, to go ahead and do it. The boys are still talking about crazy David who they’ve renamed Cool David and Awesome David. Our jeep adventure up to the volcano, and the vineyards, and especially the off-roading was a trip to remember. Thanks again. A day to remember.”
Tina Leeson, Dublin

“Another amazing, unforgettable day out with Crazy David Penney, with family. They loved it, seeing lots of hidden places, had the most amazing food, lots of sunshine.”
Karen M G, resident

“One of the most unbelievable days I ever had in my life, thank you so much having this funny adventures together ❤ would love to do it again!!!
So much fun on this #birthday event on #lanzarote – Crazy David you are so great!!!”
Conny Weis, resident

“Just back from a fantastic day with crazy David. So privileged to have seen the true Lanzarote. Would highly recommend spending a day touring with him – you get knowledge, experience, extremely well looked after, it’s all tailored to suit you and your interests and what can I say about his jokes!!”
Lynne Daw, Scotland

“What a fab day with a difference , we wanted a wine tour but not the typical tourist tour with the coaches 😜 called on David Penney and had a day to remember !! We have been acquainted, informed , educated , enjoyed and laughed our way through the fabulous wines produced on this island from vines to vino.”
Veronica Fegan, Middlesburgh

“There are days that you have in life that you remember for years afterwards. David’s tour day on our recent holiday to Lanzarote is absolutely one of them! We set out as a party of six and experienced such a variety of places during our time. David is knowledgeable and informative throughout and most of all, courteous and considerate of everyone’s needs. He took the time to find out who we were and what we wanted and made sure we all enjoyed the day! Thank you David. Truly unforgettable.”
Rhona, Manchester

“Hi David,

I’d like to thank you very much for providing all 20 of us with such a wonderful tour! We all left Lanzarote with positive thoughts on your special Island.

When we get home in a couple of weeks, I’ll write a good review on TripAdvisor.

Best wishes on your future, personally and professionally.”

Frances, USA

“Had a fabulous day in the company of David, last Monday. My daughter, two of my sisters and I, enjoyed every minute of our experience and trusted David to tailor the day based on our interests. We even trusted him to order our food, which was really good, and different to our normal choices. We would recommend a trip with David, who is expert in Lanzarote environment and history and is also very reasonable.”
Maureen Braithwaite, LEEDS

“Just back from a fantastic day with David Penney (Adventure Holidays Lanzarote). So privileged to have seen the true Lanzarote. Would highly recommend spending a day touring with him – you get knowledge, experience, extremely well looked after, it’s all tailored to suit you and your interests and what can I say about his jokes!!”
Lynn Daw, FIFE Scotland

“He’s a scream isn’t he Lynn & very accommodating to what the client wants to see & do (loves his job way too much).
It’s some experience, way off what you’d see on a normal ‘tour bus’, you get to see places in the back of beyond (& yes ‘the jokes’ are ‘out there’ too you’ll be well entertained I can tell you, I’ve been on 2 “crazy David” days (that’s what their called & i didn’t see the same places on either trip, a gr8 day out all round.”
Sharon Byrne, DUBLIN

“Great guy, amazing days x”
Karen Marie Gainford, LANZAROTE

“What a fab day with a difference , we wanted a wine tour but not the typical tourist tour with the coaches 😜 called on David Penney and had a day to remember !!

Reta Wrafter

“Waking up today with a big smile after another day off exploring the island with David and my parents 🙂
I’ve been on a couple of trips with David Penney and his company Adventure Holidays Lanzarote now and every time he amazes me with the beauty of the island and new stunning places to discover!

A little summary of yesterday’s trip:

We drove off towards the north of the island, first stop the race track with a loads of beautiful horses.
Next stop the famous pirate castle, including the most detailed explanation ever about the population of Lanzarote and the pirate attacks…

Afterwards off-road to the caves, Impressive caves and the views from there where absolutely stunning!
Time to fill up with energy with a great lunch in a little traditional Canadian restaurant in Haria, delicious tapas and a great atmosphere!

With a full belly off to the REAL north instead of Mirador el Rio or Orzola but off the most horrendous but exciting dirt track all the way to the cliffs to the north! Spectacular to see the clouds rolling of the cliffs and hills 🙂
Which I didn’t know about this place, there are loads of bunkers from the Second World War build by Franco so another history lesson!

Afterwards we had some time left to visit some smaller caves and check out the different vegetation on the island before heading home and getting dropped off!

I highly recommend everyone; islanders, locals, visitors, holiday makers to have a look at the website and book a awesome day trip with David, you’ll get to know the island as you never knew before!

There is so much to explore and see what you normally won’t see or just do because you’re to busy with daily life! You’ll get a totally different perspective of the island and you’ll escape the daily routine for just a day with some amazing stuff!

Yesterday I felt like a little boy again but then in a huge kinder garden! So David once again I can’t thank you enough for another amazing and memorable trip on our island we can luckily call our home!”
Bart Buitenhuis (Ryanair Pilot)

“Fantastic day today for my parents 50th anniversary. We had a David Penney day. He showed us around parts of Lanzarote we didn’t know existed and kept us amused whilst doing so! I can thoroughly recommend a Crazy David day for anyone. Thank you x”
Debbie Ash – La Cabana

“Lanzarote would not be the same without a David Penney day! It’s an absolute must. Me n Ciara were talking tonight about the best day … and it was Crazy David all the way…”
Barbs McNally

“Crazy David,
A short note of appreciation for the cracking day out yesterday, 17/1/2017. The out of the way places you took us were awesomely different and the craic among the whole group was infectious. A brilliant day out with new friends. Buenisimo!!!”
Bruce and Sue Kilner

“I booked a tour for my son’s 10th birthday. We had the most amazing day with the one and only Crazy David!! From start to finish the day was great, the boys loved and want to go again. I have lived here in Lanzarote for 17 years and was amazed at how much I didn’t know!! I can’t praise David enough, his knowledge is phenomenal and he is so good with kids. I will definitely book to go again . Thanks once again “Crazy David!”
Julie & Tomas

DAVID… the crazy one! It was a great pleasure to join you for the adventurous trip to some secret places off the beaten track and see Lanzarote from a different perspective as well as meeting you and learning from you… after visiting the caves I’m thinking about having my 40th birthday in them while you play a pirate or ghost 😀
Take care and see you… feel free to come to Dresden and I’ll show you some wonderful places here 😉
Nicky, Germany

“Still buzzing from yesterday’s day out exploring the island with David, Jonas, Arjan & Nathalie!!

David took us to the north of the island to explore some of the lava tunnels which are a secret to the public!
Being in complete darkness for over three hours was a awesome experience!!! So much to see and to discover and we’ve learned a lot about lava flows and volcanoes, thanks David!

Afterwards a well deserved lunch with delicious tapas in Arrieta. Driving back home we decided to do a small detour and ended up in the little desert with the sand dunes.

I thought after living here for almost three years I knew this island but I’m wrong, there are so many places I haven’t seen or even haven’t heard of! Quite shocked to be honest, there is so much around in your backyard you don’t know about and we just don’t go out there to see what it is. So good lessons learned go out and about and explore and be amazed what you’ll find!

David, many many thanks taking us out there and expect a phone call soon for another adventure! 🙂

I highly recommend anyone visiting the island or living here to give David and his company Adventure Holidays Lanzarote a call and have a day out with him it will be guaranteed 100% fun, awesome and jaw dropping!!”
Bart Buitenhuis, Holland

“I want to say a massive thank you! David you made the run up to the wedding so memorable for Mark and I.
We will always recommend when friends and family visit Lanzarote to view it through the eyes of a David Day so they can truly see its beauty and have such an adventure x”
Colette and Mark

“I’ve known David as a friend, rather than as a client, for almost seven years, and having had one or two “interesting” moments in the wilder parts of the countryside with him and our other friends, I can thoroughly recommend him as a safe, entertaining, informative host who can show you what the island really has to offer once you get out of the resorts.”
John Brindley

“We have such an amazing day today thanks to Diane for organising a day with David Penney!
We’ve been places not even the locals have been, off roading thinking i’m going to die falling off cliffs to surfers paradise beach, the volcano including all of the others that have now blown there tops off! Caves that we wont talk about 🙂 , a man and 2 dogs walking his massive heard of goats! And places that David shared with us personally, absolutely breath taking views!
Words cant describe what our eyes have seen today so thank you David for sharing it with us! Crazy David is the man to know.”
Tabatha and Daniel Garrity

“Thank you to David Penney for such a brilliant day today. Taking us on a breathtaking tour around Lanzarote.. Seeing places we’ve never heard of. Fantastic can’t wait to go again.”
Jodie and Brett

“OUR PINK DAVID DAY was a blast!!
Laughter, thrills, informative, and we fell a little more in love with our beautiful island …
Stunning, simply stunning spot for our BBQ .. Our own private black beach. Fabulous memories made with wonderful friends.”
Janet, Gill, Karen, Tracey, Helena & Helen

On holiday with my twins (have left husband and son in England). I booked a day with a guy named David Penney and he’s shown us the most amazing sights, not the usual tourist stuff, off roading, exploring, risk taking. He is a font of knowledge, brilliant with kids of all ages. Awesome! If anyone comes to Lanzarote, book him, you won’t regret it.
Carol Rogers

“Yet another fab “crazy David day” with a unique off road & off tourist route experience.”
Sharon Byrne

“Great day out with David Penney , full tour of the island, would highly recommend a day out with David, a great laugh plus learning the history of the island, Do Not call him Dave :-)”
Tina Nolan and family

“During our day out with Crazy DAVID (do NOT call him Dave !), what struck me the most was how he managed to captivate the kids, not just with his astounding knowledge but his enthusiasm and clear love for the island we all call home. If I can pay him the highest of compliments it would be that I took from him ways to be a better Dad. From Geologist to Physician to Historian to Oenologist to Volcanologist to Biologist to Horticulturalist to Child Minder-ist! He just seemed to bounce (literally) from one interesting spot to another with limitless enthusiasm and tireless energy. It all made for a fantastic day out in great company and I can’t thank him enough. Gx
Gary & Rachel, Residents of Lanzarote

“David, thank you for such a fantastic day out yesterday. It was great fun, engaging, friendly, unique, personal, interesting and informative… I could go on… but I think you realise that we all had a great day! We felt that we got a little glimpse into the real Lanzarote. Thank you so much.
I am sure the boys will be making some Facebook recommendations and we will certainly encourage/ enforce (!) friends to take a trip with you if they are visiting Lanzarote.”
Heather, Graeme, Robert & Iain – Edinburgh

“Just back from the most wonderful day out with this crazy man. Thanks a million for a great day. X”
Philomena, Eleanor, Madeleine, Emma, Deirdre, Brona – Ireland

“A big huge thank you to David Penney for an amazing day From Cows (yes there are some in Lanzarote!) to vineyards (had to be something to do with wine on the day. Then onto the party cave , this was amazing and i might just have to book it for my next birthday , then we went to the desert and went on a rollercoaster …. Cannot recommend this man enough even if he does tell a bad joke or two. Again thank you from us all and look forward to doing it all again.”
Rachel & Gary, Nicola, Susan and the kids

“Thanks David for a fabulous day… it was great fun with your knowledge & passion of the island. Hopefully see you again soon for another adventure!”
Michelle & Joe, Lanzarote Residents

“Great day out with my family with Crazy David. Thanks David Penney, was brilliant. X”
Lucy & Trevor – La Santa

“Best day out ever 🙂 love my David days.”

“I would like to say a big thank you to David, we booked a Lava Experience during our stay in Lanzarote. We have been to many countries and many tours over the years, but the time we spent with David was unforgetable. My little one, Alex (9 years old) says it was her best trip ever. She keeps talking about the day and is very happy sharing her knowledge about volcanos with others. The way David presents all he knows about Lanzarote is so passionate that you just absorb everything like sponge. He would be a perfect teacher. Alex is very happy as next year they will learn about volcanos at school and she already knows so much and she also has her pictures.The Olivina stone given to her by David is on her desk. If anybody wishes to have the best day out and learn about that beautiful island than go with Crazy David!!!
Agnes, Mirek and Alex, Poland

“I went on a wonderful safari adventure day yesterday around Lanzarote with the Crazy Amazing David Penney. I have seen new places and learned facts about the island I wasn’t aware of. Thank you David. I have also made new friends. It was so much fun. I highly recommend that if you come to Lanzarote you book a day out with David. You won’t regret it.”
Angie Pugliese, Italy

“As I’ve beed living in Lanzarote for nearly 30 years, you would think Crazy David could not show me many places I had not been to… wrong! Not only he showed me 5 or 6 places I had never been to, he showed me the island in such a fun and informative way that I’m sure I’ll do it again. David , you’re not crazy , you’re just a fantastic Ambassador for Lanzarote with a passion that is catching.
Gracias amigo.”
Ricardo Abruneiras, Lanzarote

“If you want to experience the real Lanzarote and get off the beaten track, then I would highly recommend a ‘David Day’ with Adventure Holidays Lanzarote. David has taken a great deal of time to explore the many treasures of the island, many of which are rarely visted by tourists and has incorporated these into a wide range of fantastic activities. I have personally climbed through a 2-mile lava tunnel, visited La Graciosa, done a volcano walk and done several 4×4 off-roads trips with David and they have all been enjoyable and memorable experiences. If you’ve got a couple of days or even a spare afternoon free while you’re on the island, book a David Day!”
Paul Flintoft, UK

“Hi David, Just a quick note to say thank you so much for a brilliant day out on the jeep safari last Saturday. We enjoyed every minute of our trip to Lanzarote but the day out with you was the real highlight. Thank you and best wishes.”
Millie and Paul

“The best day I have ever spent on the island, learned more in 1 day than in 15 visits over the years and was introduced to a great tapas in Arrieta.”
Paul Burrows – Bromley, UK

“I don’t advertise but I have to recommend this guy for knowing the island’s hidden landmarks inside and out. What he does not know about this beautiful island is not worth knowing. He is amazing too. Fantastic day out. So many hidden treasures to see. So if you are on the island and fancy it just give him a call. 100% fab excursion.” xxxxx
Sandy Bart

“Just back of the David day what an experience! David thanks for the great day and we had a lot of fun. Love and a big kiss from Saskia, Fred and Victor from the Netherlands.”
Victor Meijer

We did trekking with his friends, had lunch together as a family and after that David offer to show us Lanzarote in his jeep! Lovely day, many thanks!!”

“Hi David, as I promised I have sent some pictures from our amazing trip through Lanzarote which took place just before Christmas. The trip it was absolutely amazing. We are still impressed by your approach to spread your knowledge with us. Probably, we are going to miss Lanzarote for a long time but it is OK as long as it is in its positive way… we’ve got snowstorm here in Stavanger so it’s even difficult to sleep 🙂

Thanks for the trip.”

Audrey Kershaw

“A day out with David is the BEST day ever..we haven’t laughed as much in years and it was brilliant to go to parts of the island that I had never experienced before. Thanks David xxx.”
Andrea McDonnell

“I had the great pleasure and fun of taking Davids tour visiting and going in to an extinct Volcano in the morning and walking about 1km in an underground volcano tunnel in the afternoon-the tunnel particularly I had passed many times and never even knew it existed.

A lot of banter and fun but you must be able to take it as well as give it!!!I have recommended Adventure-Holidays Lanzarote to a lot of people at least 5 of whom went on a tour and spoke equally highly of David. It must be the number one attraction on the island and so much fun too. Thank you so much David.”
Sean Feehan

“David, Thanks for sharing your playground with me! Enjoy 8-)”
Lauren Linzer

I will let you know when the pictures are up and review done..however if you need me to provide references to anyone just have them contact me through FB or email… lots of hugs…”

“We will be booking our 3rd David day next month, you cannot put into words really what sort of a fantastic day out David provides for you, so if you haven’t heard of or tried a David day BOOK NOW!”
Billy Etchells

“It’s the bestest (spelling police stay out of it – it’s 3:25AM) day out ever. It’s not work for David. He is so passionate about Lanzarote it it is very infectious. After such a great day out we have stayed up having fun but also reminiscing about the fun we have had throughout the day. He is a legend in his own lifetime. I will be booking another trip for sure.”
Andy Lee

“We had a great time on our adventure with Crazy David and Dan. Pooped myself when I saw the hole in the ground that we had to go down but so glad I did it. Thanks to David for encouraging my 5 year old and getting her down the lava tunnel and me too! Im such a scaredy cat but loved every minute of the adventure. Both of my 2 say it was the best part of their holiday.”
Julie Meehan

“Just got home from an extended amazing day out with David of Adventure-Holidays Lanzarote. Rachel Hey and Skippy Oz Paul together with Yvonne and I have had the most exciting adventurous but also educational day learning and seeing and sometimes feeling with laughter all the way the incredible landscapes of Lanzarote and fine tapas. I can’t recommend David highly enough.”
Andy Lee

“Crazy David, yes this is what people call him on the island. But he is a pleasant crazy guy. Before coming to Lanzarote I contacted a few local people to maybe explore the island with. With David I hit the jackpot here. Together with 3 other visitors to the island the 5 of us explored the island under Davids professional guidance. It was really great going around with him and do a truly off the beaten track trip with him. When coming to Lanzarote I would advise people to contact him. Thanks David for a great day.”
Mies, Holland

“This is by far the best experience up to now. David David escorted me throughout ‘his’ island of Lanzarote (and La Graciosa) and let me see amazing places through the local’s eye. He treated me like a friend. He was unexpectedly helpful in a couple of emergency situations. I really had a great time with crazy David. I think visiting Lanzarote without meeting David you would miss out a lot we should be honoured to have such a friend.”
Sylvia, Italy

“Hi David, Thank you for a good day which we AGAIN thoroughly enjoyed. The lunch was spot on and the company good. Keep us informed about your new truck when you get it. Very best regards and have a good 2014.”
