What people are saying about Masca

A wonderful tour to discover the main sites of the island. The 15€ optional lunch was very nice too. We couldn’t hear the guide very well but he never stops...however it is very well organised and timings are impeccable. The road up from Masca is impressive but I had every confidence in the driver! Beautiful views, amazing scenery, fascinating geology, picturesque villages and also glimpse of the past eruptions and the black volcanic rock left behind! I thoroughly recommend this excursion. Do not try to drive it yourself!

Fully recommend this experience, as it takes you through various parts of the island and show how different and interesting the island is. The tour guide Christopher was really entertaining and knowledgeable. I would only wish to have a bit more time at Teide park, as 30mins isn’t enough to enjoy this place enough!

great trip, great experience, a great discovery. A guide at the top with explanations in French. An exceptional coach driver, especially given the bends. Cheap and good restaurant. I recommend !
