The guide, Benjamin, was very nice and he knew, as expected, many things about Tenerife, the Canary Islands and Teide National Park, he took the time to walk us through the history, geography and some local legends. Frankie, one excellent driver, very professional and careful on the road, we felt very safe with him behind the wheel. Benjamin and Frankie, thank you very much, we can't wait to visit Teide again with you. Unfortunately, although we enjoyed a sunny day, it was too windy and the cable car was closed but we saw some very nice places in the National Park and we honestly feel this trip was amazing as it was. The guide informed us how to get our cable car ticket money back. All in all, we spent a beautiful day on this trip.

Great experience highly recommend. My son and I wanted to try scuba diving and where better to try out than the warm waters of tenerife. Our instructor Erion was excellent. Very knowledgeable experienced diver. Health and safety briefing was good in a friendly laid back manner. He explained everything we were going to do outside the dive centre before we set off. Erion made sure we knew what we were doing and was able to answer any questions we had. Very welcoming friendly place, I can't recommend highly enough. If you want to try scuba diving in tenerife this is the place to do it. Thank you for an amazing experience will definitely do it again.

An unforgettable and clearly repeatable experience if we return to Tenerife! Both captain and sailors a charm of people !! The boat very well maintained and very pleasant to navigate. We saw dolphins as we left and loads of families of sperm whales! Also, mention that it was a detail that when we approached the animals they kept a safe distance for them and also turned off the engines so they would not be scared. More than agredever is that they recommended us places to eat around the island really rich and cheap. THANK YOU FOR THIS TRIP

Started as a great day out - our tour guide was full of interesting fact that made the 1.5hr journey to the cable car go by quickly. The volcano itself it incredible and the walks are very manageable in the time allocated. My partner happened to become very sick on the cable car on the way down but our tour guide was very helpful, allowing him stops for air and dropping us of first at our hotel. Despite his illness it was an unforgettable experience!

It was a great experience to see the whales from so close . The catamaran and the crew was also very nice. There was also lunch and drinks included
