Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a hassle-free day out in the mountains. It’s one of the best day tours I’ve ever been on, stunning views, very small group, friendly driver, comfortable and modern coach and very knowledgable and cheerful guide. Whenever I come back to Canaria, I will, for sure do this tour again. We have been given plenty of opportunities to take pictures and enjoy the scenery as well as explore Teror and San Mateo towns.

My guide was Bruno. He was both knowledgeable and honest. I felt we really do two tours in one. I think the highlight for my husband was the coffee farm and winery. Mine was the visit to the town Teror. He mentioned he was married in the church there. Everywhere we went he had a connection. He was also able to answer related questions. All and all it was a good day.
