On this trip we stopped at a number of interesting places, we walked, had lunch at a local restaurant and swam on the beach with big waves. Our guide Jaime was very nice and we really enjoyed his company. He was approachable, talkative and very well prepared. He taught us a lot of interesting things about Tenerife. My husband and I travelled with 4 children aged 8, 10, 11 and 13 years. Jaime knows how to communicate well with children and they also found this trip very interesting. Although we spent the entire day with him, no one complained that they were bored. Everything can be arranged through Jaime; he is adaptable, practical and very organized. We recommend this trip to everyone as you will see many interesting things and you will learn a lot about the history of the island, culture, climate, plants and more. It was a great pleasure to learn so much about the Canary Islands. We enjoyed it so much that we arranged two more trips with Jaime. When it was time to leave, the children

I had my tour in the middle of June 2021. Guide was great. I saw before this tour alot but places in this tours are so special. This tour is not only about volcanoes.. Ofcourse it's great chance to get to know different lava forms, get to know consistent, to walk on the lava.... Alot of new information about history, life style before descovery of Canarian Island and changes after, horozontal rain, forest recovery after fire, biggest and oldest tree of the Chr.Columbus time, traditions, culture, local shops with local pastry, stunning landscapes with hidden places of Tenerife.

Everything is wonderfully told and shown - we would not find so many interesting places ourselves. I recommend highly.

Have a great day! Learned a lot about the island, its history, and the locals!

It's totally worth it! I will come back for this tour indeed
