What people are saying about La Orotava

It was a lovely day and having our guide Angel and driver too.We were collected from our hotel at Costa Adeje. The trip was full of information from Angel and his vast knowledges of being a canarios and other travel information. We covered all these places below as we don’t think we can visit them in just one day, for us it’s the best to know these places if ever we have to check it out again and that helps us to give an idea. We can’t comment to the German guide and we are only 4 people in this tour but he is our guide or to accompany us for a photo or short walk. We had lunch at Candelaria which is near the church and chose the restaurant near the coast and it was lovely and great price too. Angel never have any deals with those restaurants like other travel agents that they will push you to eat to that place. Places we’ve visited Santiago del Teide Garachico Icod de los vinos La Orotava San Cristóbal de la laguna or la laguna Candelaria El Medano

Angel was a great guide! He knew a ton about the island and kept us entertained the entire 8 hour day. Pickup was easy, during the car time he’d tell us about what we were seeing, culture and history of the island, local cuisine, etc. and during the stops he’d let us explore on our own but gave recommendations of what to do. He was funny, spoke great English, and I could tell he was passionate about this job. The van was very comfortable and new and even had Wi-Fi! I was staying in Costa Adeje in the south but wanted to see the north of the island as well. This was the perfect way to do it without having to rent a car and guide myself. Would recommend!

My friend and I really enjoyed this excursion because the guides were so friendly and kind to us! They made us feel at home and tried their best to make the experience enjoyable. This excursion allowed us to explore many places on the island for a good price. It would have been much more expensive to have done this on our own! 10/10 would recommend.

Very very beautiful unforgettable experience !!! A top notch driver who taught us a lot about tenerife, its history, its culture and its way of life. I recommend 100% the experience it is worth it to discover this wonderful island

An interesting journey to the ancient center of the mountain village.
