It was a great experience and better than other tours I have done. Bernard proved a practiced driver around the narrow switch back road from Masca. Julian our guide was very firm but fair. He was very knowledgeable about the places and history but unfortunately spoke a little fast to catch all of what he said.

Really nice experience! Highly recommended! The staff picked us up earlier from the meeting so we didn't have to wait. We drove around the south part of the island (since that was our starting point) to pick up the rest of the people. Stop 1: Vilaflor, fantastic view, nice tranditional coffee, 15-20 min. Stop 2: Teide and around the volcano, interesting landscapes!. Stop 3: Garachico, photoshooting, 10 min. Stop 4: Icos de los Vinos, nice lunch, beautiful dragon tree, 1.5 h. Stop 5: Garachico (again), city walking and history. Stop 6: Masca, amazing mountainuous village, nice cactus ice-cream, walking, 20 min. The tour finishes there, but during driving they pass by other nice villages and banana plantations. Our guide was funny and gave many info for the history and life on the island. It was a realy nice scanning of the key places of Tenerife! I would do it again, but this time sitting at the inner seats of the bus since I am afraid of heights and Masca was a bit "scary" for me!

Road to Masca was well worth the trip! Driver of bus (think his name was Victorianas) very skilled driver. Tiede area was nice too. Stopped in Garachico for food, not worth stopping there. Followed tour guide to a recommended restaurant which was authentic Canarian, food was advertised as €5 per meal but we somehow got charged €17 for two meals. Very small meals too. Overall very pleasant trip for price, only lost star due to last restaurant.
