This was the highlight of our trip to Tenerife. it's a full day excursion where you'll be picked up around 9am and then get dropped of around 6pm. Our guide was brilliant and the hike around Masca was stunning, the trails are easy to hike even for beginners. We also got super lucky and saw a family of dolphins whilst out on our boat ride. I would defs recommend!

Perfect hike

I loved the tour. You see Tenerife with completely different eyes. If you are not a hiking professional, I can only recommend such a guided tour to everyone. Our guide also told a lot of information about flora and fauna and about the country and its people. That rounded off the hike.
