The best tour ever! Actually I never book such tours while on vacation.Usually trying to do activities on my own fist. This time it was something I wanted to experience differently and it was fun. The guide was cheerfull, energetic and in a good mood. Also he was very good informed and gave interesting information about Teide and not only. Besides we had really luck with the weather & were able to ride the cable car. In a nutshel, an unforgettable experience, which I'd for sure recommend to every Teneriffe visitor.

Thoroughly enjoyed the hike. Steffi our guide was really good, and none of us felt rushed and were all able to enjoy the hike at our own pace. Being a local she was well informed of all the sights we saw, and was happy to take photos for us as well. Would recommend this to anyone not keen to home up Teide themselves!

Absolutely the best thing we have done in Tenerife - our guide was Joanna and she was so friendly and knowledgeable about the areas we visited. The tuk-tuk was super comfy and beautifully decorated. Two hours very well spent - would highly recommend to anyone visiting Tenerife for the 1st or 10th time!

Great trip with a funny quide:) You will see beautiful sceneries of the island. This trip is very convenient if you travel solo.

Very nice trip, worh this money. Definetly will go again if will be back in Los Cristianos
