Overall rating

unforgettable trip, beautiful views, it's worth going, MASCA's place in the park is really impressive, as well as driving along narrow roads along the serpentines of the park, A bit too little freedom to admire the views at stops, too fast pace at stops, the trip was supposed to start at 8 a.m. before we gathered everyone it started at 9 so we lost 1 hour which would have been useful at the viewpoints. I also do not recommend the proposed restaurant called CARMEN by the guide, The food is nasty, raw, unseasoned (the WORST!) the rest is ok,

This tour was the best tour from our trip. What made this tour most memorable was our guide, Mateo. His personality fits perfectly to work with people from All corners of the world. I cannot speak highly enough of Mateo. It was fun, adventurous, and I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Tenerife go on this tour. It lasts approximately 4 hours and I enjoyed every bit of it.

What a fantastic day! Both guides were lovely and made the trip all the more memorable. Would definitely recommend and great value for money!

Friendly informative staff, it is cold highly recommend long trousers & fleece great experience Highly recommend from pick up to drop off

Everything well. Just a suggestion: if you go in the winter, i recommend bring jackets to snow
