The 8 minute cable cars took us up to near the very top of mount Teide, the views above the clouds were simply outstanding, worth every penny , we were left to explore these stunning views with the options to walk on trails either left or right to further explore the views down into the valley and the coastline, then after about an hour we got the cable cars bak down, plenty of time to get food and drink in the restaurant and use toilet facilities before we boarded our coach. The guide was lvly and gave us lots of interesting information about the history of tiede and Tenerife , its formation and plenty of panaramic views which will last us a life time . I recommend this tour to anyone visiting tenerife that do not have any health issues as the air is very fresh and thin up there not appropriate for anyone with heart conditions though please read the guidance information carefully before booking .
The trip was very well organised - we were provided with a commentary in 3 languages and learned a lot about the island of Tenerife and Mount Teide. We had 2 photo stops on the way back that were well selected for their views. We got the tickets for the cable car and were able to see the great view from the top. If I was to include the only room for improvement, it was that there was not enough time for us to even go to the Pico Viejo viewing point - we had 1.5 hours to take the cable car there and back, but the cable car including the queue for it took 30 mins each way. We had to turn around from the walk to Pico Viejo before we got there, and had no time to explore the other side of the peak.
Great trip! It was run very efficiently, everything was on time; Teide NP is gorgeous and well worth visiting! Going up the mountain was very special, I did not have the permit to climb to the very top (if you want to do it - make sure you get the permit upfront). However, I loved walking through the other trails and enjoying the scenery - amazing. There are good bathrooms and a nice cafe at the cable car station. The transport and the guide were great as well.
Sehr guter Tour, so konnten wir den nördlichen Teil von Tenerife sehen- Puerto de la Cruz und Orotava. Oben war es bei uns gerade am Gipfel geschlossen, da es Eis am Weg zu dem Gipfel war, aber wir haben einen Trek in der Valley gemacht und war auch sehr interessant und mit fascinierenden Aussichten.
The guide was brilliant and the tour was good value for money. My only issue was the time spent on the coach picking up and dropping off other travellers.
