This was such a wonderful tour. Amazingly friendly and informative guide Steffi navigated talking to people of different nationalities with ease. The bus journey was comfortable and we were very grateful for the early start- it gets incredibly busy at the cable car station. Be aware, the hike (it’s steep and rocky) to the summit may seem short in distance but the altitude makes a big difference. You have to take it slowly. Steffi checked on us all the way up which was so reassuring. The views and sense of achievement at the summit are fantastic. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

Although it was cloudy all day on the coast, we soon rose through the clouds and emerged into a very impressive volcanic landscape under blue skies and sunshine. While waiting for the wind speed to drop so that we could make the cable car ascent to the summit of Teide, our guide led us on an informative walk around the local rock formations. I learned much from this, as indeed from the commentary we heard while driving to and from the national park area. Sadly, the wind did not drop and we were unable to reach the summit of Teide but this did not ruin the tour. It was worth seeing the interior of the island, which is spectacular. The summit would have been a bonus but there’s always next time!

This was a wonderful experience. We were very lucky to have a beautiful, wind-free day. Stephi was a wonderful guide. She was very friendly and made sure that everyone was taken care of. I was not staying in a touristy area, so I had to take a TITSA bus to Los Christianos. I worried about not being able to connect with the group at the designated pick up point, but everything was ok! Stephi picked me out from the group of people looking for their tours. You should definitely do this!
