Really nice experience! Highly recommended! The staff picked us up earlier from the meeting so we didn't have to wait. We drove around the south part of the island (since that was our starting point) to pick up the rest of the people. Stop 1: Vilaflor, fantastic view, nice tranditional coffee, 15-20 min. Stop 2: Teide and around the volcano, interesting landscapes!. Stop 3: Garachico, photoshooting, 10 min. Stop 4: Icos de los Vinos, nice lunch, beautiful dragon tree, 1.5 h. Stop 5: Garachico (again), city walking and history. Stop 6: Masca, amazing mountainuous village, nice cactus ice-cream, walking, 20 min. The tour finishes there, but during driving they pass by other nice villages and banana plantations. Our guide was funny and gave many info for the history and life on the island. It was a realy nice scanning of the key places of Tenerife! I would do it again, but this time sitting at the inner seats of the bus since I am afraid of heights and Masca was a bit "scary" for me!
We loved this so much! Neil, our guide, was very knowledgeable and passionate about Tenerife and Teide. He drove very well and was sure to tell us as much info as possible. Lots of stops to view and take photos. The jeep was very fun to be in with the roof off in the sun. Lots of chances to walk around on your own or in a group. Lovely cafe and restaurant (at your own expense). Teide and the national Park are amazing and definitely the thing to do whilst in Tenerife. Unfortunately just as we arrived at the restaurant, our jeep broke down so we had to jump in with another group for the final part but definitely didn't ruin our day. Would definitely recommend!!
our guide was really kind and nice and spoke excellent english. wish i knew a bit more about the real activity though: we walked from the parking lot with the group a bit into the desert and stood there for the next hour. Our guide gave us excellent explanation about all the possible star constellations above us. strongly recommend if you are into astronomy and wanna learn about the sky. they also provide lights (although we didnt get one, even when we asked) and warm jackets (definitely a life saver).
It was an exceptional experience from the beggining till the end. Our guide Jaime was very well prepared - he knows about Tenerife culture, history, flora and fauna a lot and is excited to share! We hiked in amazing Laurel leaves forest, also went to see another panoramic views, shared local food together (goat meat,etc.). We had a feeling as we have spent our day with a friend, who wants to show the best what Tenerife has!
Fantastic experience! Luke was our guide for the night and provided us with an eye opening opportunity to look closely at stars, planets and our moon with an amazing telescope. He was both inspiring and knowledgeable. We learned about the constellations and how to navigate them. If you aren't an astronomy enthusiast yet you will be by the end of this tour!
