Florencio was a perfect guide! He picked us up from our hotel and drove us to the winery and to grab a coffee with beautiful views. We then ate lunch at a typical guachinche where he visits frequently with his family. The food was absolutely delicious! It was a great experience to immerse ourselves in the culture. We would recommend this experience to anyone!

Amazing time with our guide Angel. Very informative and we so appreciated the pick up from our resort as we were staying at Amarillo Golf. Because of heat and fire scare the forest paths were shut so we went on an alternative tour (malpais de guimar) which was great.

Absolutely recommendable tour! The guide picked us up in front of the hotel and we were able to discover many places together. He explains a lot, speaks very good English and is extremely friendly. The stops are beautiful, it is really amazing to see this island!

The visit to the winery was incredible, very beautiful and exceptional treatment. The guachinche they took us to makes you feel like one of the island and Jonathan our guide treated us very well.

Nice forest, beautiful views and the guide was friendly.
