Great tour, the guide Cao was really patient and always very fun. The path was difficult on some parts which I didn’t expect but I was happy that it was a serious hike and not just a walk on the mountains. After the hike we got a delicious local wine and cheese tasting. Also Cao was very kind to ride us to the beach which was quite far . Definitely I recommend !!

Amasing trip!! Cao is a fantastic guide, knows the land & history so well witch he grew up on, the vegitation and the geology that combines this trip into one big experience. Cao’s smile, kindness & passion is so contagious that you forget all of your troubles and you simply get sucked into his world of fun and mindfulness.

Steffi Wasa great guide. Very knowledgeable and had good rapport with the people working at the park. Though we missed our initial time slot for the cable car (closed due to wind), she took us on an additional hike for an hour or so and then got us onto a later car when it was opened again.

Stefi, the organisator of the tour decided to move the excursion on next day due to wheather conditions. It was just perfect: blue sky, nice view and very well organized tour. She can answer any questions and make the tour very interesting.

All experience was excellent. Starting with communication with a guide. Anjel is very knowledgeable man and we learned a lot about nature of Tenerife .We really enjoyed and recommend this tour to other tourists.
