Full description
Visit La Laguna, the first capital of the island of Tenerife, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the richness of its agriculture and the good state of the old buildings. Go for a walk with your tour guide and learn all about this elegant city while taking beautiful photos of your surroundings.  Next, visit the Esperanza forest on the way to the Teide Volcano. Stop here to taste a delicious coffee known as barraquito before pausing at several different viewpoints throughout the forest to enjoy its beautiful Canarian pines and eucalyptus trees. Then, arrive at the National Park where you will make several stops, steering clear of tourist traps. Heading down, see Chinvero Volcano which saw the last volcanic eruption in Tenerife in 1909. Before arriving at Garachico, stop for lunch where you can try some traditional Canarian food. Garachico is a very elegant town with a rich architectural heritage from the XVI, XVII, and XVIII centuries which deemed it a relevant Site of Cultural Interest in 1994.  Finally, visit Icod de los Vinos where you will see the Millenary Dragon Tree, a very important tree that is more than 1000 years.

There were 6 of us in our group- parents with two teens and two grandparents. We were picked up on time and our tour went very smoothly - covered everything as described. The pace was perfect for us. The vehicle was spacious, clean and comfortable. Our guide Angel was terrific- he explained lots of things and had interesting stories to tell. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

we were a very small group, only 3 people as well as the driver and the tour guide. The two of us showed us really great places, stopped wherever we wanted to take photos and it was possible. Really a very individual trip with a very dedicated tour guide. The tour lasted over 8 hours, it was advertised as 7 hours. It was really worth the money. Only the knowledge of German could have been a little better, but during the course of the day we understood the tour guide Arancha better and she repeated it constantly and was very patient.

Very nice trip in a small group. Minibus with 6 persons + car with 4 persons. We were picked up by minibus near the harbor. And then drove to La Laguna. There we had to wait half an hour for the car. This was annoying as there was nothing to see on the place we were waiting for. then it went on foot through the city. Then to the oldest dragon tree in the world. After that we did a little wine tasting - but we were asked if we wanted to. Then we went to a small, very nice restaurant to have a snack. And then we went to the Teide with some stops in the mountains. These could have been longer and more. Here we were a little under time pressure from the food and the wait in La Laguna.
