  • Tenerife: Loro Parque Ticket with Transfer from the South

    3. Tenerife: Loro Parque Ticket with Transfer from the South

    Spend the day at Loro Parque, a world-famous animal adventure park in the Canaries that’s loved by all. Get up close and personal with the magnificent animals for a memorable experience in a special piece of paradise. Discover the Antarctic at Planet Penguin, home to a real iceberg and hundreds of penguin inhabitants. Take your seat at spectacular Orca Ocean and watch as killer whales demonstrate their strength and agility. See if you can keep from smiling as acrobatic dolphins and sea lions entertain you with their gravity-defying moves. New to Loro Parque is Katandra TreeTops, a place to meet the most amazing species of birds. Be on the lookout for loris, cockatoos, emus, and kookaburras as you traverse hanging bridges and make your way along jungle paths.

    Park was great. Only complaint was the transfer. 15 minutes late, not the company to blame, but even on scheduled time, only gives time to rush around to try and see everything, could have been an hour earlier. Tickets were cheaper than buying direct. Will definitely use again when going away.

The tour is great to visit the most emblematic sights of the north in a single day. During the journey Samuel (our guide) gives explanations and the bus makes many stops to admire views and more. They give a break of 1 hour and a quarter to eat in Garachico

Absolutely a wonderful experience. The shows are amazing and the animals are treated with respect. It is a big park with multiple shows so make sure you come early enough to see everything without rushing.

Everything was great! The guide and the bus driver were professional and super friendly. I can only recommend!

Ideal to see a lot of different things on the island in 1 day.

A unique experience, the guide explained everything perfectly
