sehr interessanter rundgang, mit einer sehr vielfältigen bepflanzung von tropischen und heimischen früchten und gemüse. wer an der geschichte von la gomera interessiert ist, ist hier genau richtig. die anschliessend servierten einheimischen häppchen und der weisswein dazu, schmeckte hervorragend und war der krönende abschluss dieses gut 2 stündigen besuches. die ‚delux‘ variante hat sich in jeder hinsicht gelohnt.

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!)

was a good tour great driver great host pity staff at resturant had no people skills
