Florenzo is an exceptional guy to say the least. Social from the first moment we have bonded a lot, spanning many topics. As a tour guide she is also very prepared and she really knows the wonders of this place, also telling very interesting and particular peculiarities. If I had the time I would do it again to spend hours with him, as his company, his wisdom and his very open and playful personality can only make a day better. He has become a brother to me and I hope that one day we will meet again somewhere else in the world

We booked this private tour so we could be picked up from the north of Tenerife - not many companies offer such a service. As it turned out, we were picked up on time, and the driver/guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and explained the background and the significance of the view points we stopped at, and the beautiful Teide Mountain. We really enjoyed the national park and the views.

It was just awesome. Florencio drove us on the tour today and impressed us with his knowledge of the flora, fauna and history of the Canary Islands. He was extremely nice and was happy to stop at different spots and take photos for us. We will be traveling to Tenerife again in 2023 and will definitely do a tour like this again.

A very nice experience! Highly recommended! Florencio is a fantastic guide and we got a good idea of the beautiful nature and history of the island.

Great Very friendly guide A simple way to see everything very well
