We started our activity on a Friday morning in March. It was a beautiful sunny morning, however we did not know until last moment if the weather would permit ascending the peak. In the end we did it and it was great. After driving on mount Teide for approximatively 1 hour through pine trees and black lava, we finally arrived at the cable car at 2200 m altitude. There we waited our turn and climbed the remaining distance until the hiking spot by cable car. It should be noted that enhanced sanitary measures are in place at the cable car: only limited number of people can be in the cable car and after each group the cable car worker cleans / désinfects all the windows. Steffi is a great guide providing explanations about the geology, flora and fauna of the mountain. She is a nature and hike lover and she shares that with the people around. The hike itself is moderately difficult, it can be intense if you go fast but if you take it slow is quite easy and short.

The 8 minute cable cars took us up to near the very top of mount Teide, the views above the clouds were simply outstanding, worth every penny , we were left to explore these stunning views with the options to walk on trails either left or right to further explore the views down into the valley and the coastline, then after about an hour we got the cable cars bak down, plenty of time to get food and drink in the restaurant and use toilet facilities before we boarded our coach. The guide was lvly and gave us lots of interesting information about the history of tiede and Tenerife , its formation and plenty of panaramic views which will last us a life time . I recommend this tour to anyone visiting tenerife that do not have any health issues as the air is very fresh and thin up there not appropriate for anyone with heart conditions though please read the guidance information carefully before booking .

The trip was very well organised - we were provided with a commentary in 3 languages and learned a lot about the island of Tenerife and Mount Teide. We had 2 photo stops on the way back that were well selected for their views. We got the tickets for the cable car and were able to see the great view from the top. If I was to include the only room for improvement, it was that there was not enough time for us to even go to the Pico Viejo viewing point - we had 1.5 hours to take the cable car there and back, but the cable car including the queue for it took 30 mins each way. We had to turn around from the walk to Pico Viejo before we got there, and had no time to explore the other side of the peak.

This was such a wonderful tour. Amazingly friendly and informative guide Steffi navigated talking to people of different nationalities with ease. The bus journey was comfortable and we were very grateful for the early start- it gets incredibly busy at the cable car station. Be aware, the hike (it’s steep and rocky) to the summit may seem short in distance but the altitude makes a big difference. You have to take it slowly. Steffi checked on us all the way up which was so reassuring. The views and sense of achievement at the summit are fantastic. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

Great trip! It was run very efficiently, everything was on time; Teide NP is gorgeous and well worth visiting! Going up the mountain was very special, I did not have the permit to climb to the very top (if you want to do it - make sure you get the permit upfront). However, I loved walking through the other trails and enjoying the scenery - amazing. There are good bathrooms and a nice cafe at the cable car station. The transport and the guide were great as well.
