Full description
Begin your tour with departure from the pickup point early in the morning. From there, head toward the capital of the island, Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Get a panoramic guided visit where you will discover the auditórium (designed by Santiago Calatrava), the castle of San Juan, and the Palmetum, a palm oasis in the middle of the city. From here, move on to the next stop, San Cristóbal de la Laguna, the first city founded in Tenerife after the conquest of the island in July 1496. No city on the island of Tenerife preserves the colonial past so well and in so little space. Take a walking tour through the old cobbled streets, and hear about the history and architecture of the city and its stately homes and churches. Next, reboard the bus to head to the next stop. On your way to Teide National Park, stop at some viewpoints in the mountains to take some pictures of the breathtaking landscape before continuing to the volcano. Once there, get to know the 3rd-highest volcano in the world — Teide — and marvel at its 3,700 meters (12,000 feet) of altitude and the lunar landscape that surrounds it. Spend 2 hours here to enjoy the wealth of fauna and flora, as there are a large number of species exclusive to the park. Walk around and discover more about the park's formation and the life in its surroundings. After this, return to the south after a day full of natural landscapes.

We were in a small group and had a wonderful guide who gave us a lot of information about the geology of the island and about the country and its people.

Great trip and guide stopped often for sightseeing and some story telling. Amazing to be able to sit in a van and not to worry about driving.
