What people are saying about Tenerife

It was a super nice experience, the two guides were super nice, great ride and a beautiful landscape. Just awesome and had a lot of fun :-) I did the ride mainly standing up, a little sore muscles the day after, but it was worth it

Beautiful scenery, all rough gravel roads in the Park. A Jeep is definitely better suited for the road condition and allows access where a rental car can’t get to.
