It was the best guided tour experience in my life. The guide was an incredibly friendly person, who talked fluently on different languages and gently took care for us. The bus was comfortable, the tour was precisely planned with a lot of sightseeing. Joyful! My advice for the restaurant: pick local goat cheese, it is delicious.

Amazing one day trip with a great guide:) You will enjoy beautiful sceneries on your way. Ferry transfer was very convenient and all transport very well organised. I was picked up from my location and same day dropped off without problems. Definitely would recommend if you have a spare day on Tenerife Island.

Bad logistics planning for our pick up we were told 7:30am (to arrive at a bus top, not the hotel as advertised).. the bust came at 7:20am and left without us. We had to take a taxi €27 to somewhere ahead so they could pick us up. Such a bad start. The tour itself was lovely as we had an amazing guide

What a beauty! :) Don't skip this tour if you are in Tenerife, you won't regret it. (Take warm clothes with you for the national park!)

Very beautiful sights, different from Tenerife island.
