What is Shortplans?

Shortplans is a sales portal for the best luxury excursions and activities for Spain’s top tourist destinations.

Why book on Shortplans?

Unlike other portals with hundreds of products but no quality control, we offer only the dozens of activities and excursions that we try out each year, which offer you the best guarantees and services based on:

  • Our experience when doing the excursion. We only offer you the activities and excursions that we have actually enjoyed ourselves.
  • The tour: the level of interest offered by the places, landscapes, monuments and attractions.
  • Guide preparation: information supplied, knowledge of the route, languages offered, responses to questions and treatment of clients.
  • Quality of the methods used to do the excursion or activity (buses, boats, jeeps, etc.)
  • The company that does the excursion: experience, prestige and seriousness; compliance with regulations, insurance and licenses in order to do the excursions; attention to the client; state and characteristics of the transportation methods that they use.
  • Best price guaranteed: you will not find a lower price for the same excursion than the one we offer.
  • Real comments and reviews from clients on ShortPlans, social media and TripAdvisor.
  • Client assessment during the excursions.
  • Mystery shoppers. We do four incognito excursions for quality control.
  • Appropriate quality / price ratio.
  • Customer service (pre-sale and post-sale)

We want you to be able to evaluate and select the excursions you want thanks to the most complete information available. As you will see, the content for each luxury excursion and activity is unique and based on our experiences. The testimonials for the excursions are real, provided by our clients once they do the excursions.

Once you choose which excursion you want to do, we want to make it easy for you to book it in a safe, secure way and in less than 1 minute, paying with a credit card or PayPal.

Our tourist intermediary code (travel agent for day trips and excursions) is I-003431.2

One more thing. As you will have noticed from our telephone number or address, we are located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Why? Because in Gran Canaria, we began developing this same service with the website www.okgrancanaria.com in 2008, and because here we have a climate and quality of life that we love.

We hope that you find us to be the ideal company for planning your vacations and that after you complete your booked excursion, you will carry unforgettable memories with you for the rest of your life.
