Don’t hesitate to book it! It totally worths it.

The trip was amazing, very well organized. We saw Mount Teide and the national park, Icod de los Vinos, Garachico and its natural pools and Masca. Landscapes were overwhelming. Both the guide and the driver were professional and very nice. Me and my husband were so thrilled with this trip! It worths each and every single euro spent on it.

Very nice trip. Worth the money. Wish we’d spent more time at Mount tiede though. Masca valley, garachico were lovely. A lot of unnecessary stops though 👀👀👀

Many thanks for your lovely review. There are stops for bathroom breaks which by law we have to make. We do try try to make them interesting. However it maybe at a little bar/shop which these places hope that maybe one person may purchase a coffee or a trinket for allowing us to use their services free of charge. In whole it still is a lovely day out and as you say ¨worth the money¨

There were at least 50 degrees in the bus as the air conditioning was very poor or non existent. Several people complained about this to no prevail. This in combination with the tour guide constantly shouting and making bad jokes ruined the experience for us.

Many thanks for your review. Yes this week there is a calima here in Tenerife and like many other coutries in Europe we are struggling with the heat. It is an unfortunate circumstance that does happen 3 - 4 times a year and lasts a few days. Please enjoy the rest of your holiday here in Tenerife

Warte of time for 1,5 hours lunch and 1 hour drive to the Restaurant. One was forced to take the 3 course lunch. This was not mentioned in the Description. Apart from that all stops were too short. Ob 20-30 minutes for each stop. Almost 6 hours spent in the Bus.

Many thanks for your review. We have now investigated into the lunch as we do advise that you take your own. The crew do ask if you would like to join in with the restaurant however you just need to say yes or no. no pressures. Yes it is a long time on the bus as it is to see the island.

Great tour - worth the money and time!
Kirill_M

The tour was very nice and it was great value for the money. We visited all the main natural sights of the island, including Teide, Masca, and the 1000 year old dragon tree. Also, when on the bus there are a lot of sights to take in around you, as you'll be driving around the Teide natural park and towards Masca valley, where there are many mountainous landscapes, farms, and Spanish houses to appreciate. Make sure to be looking out the window! There are several stops along the route, including the main sights, as well as a coffee and lunch break. The lunch break is in the nice coastal town Garachico, where you can even swim in natural pools if you brought your swimsuit with you. Just make sure to get dry before getting back on the coach! Anyway, the stops give you enough time to walk around the area (around 30 minutes for each one), as the areas are quite small so you probably won't need more time for it anyway. However, if you do want to spend more time in a particular area, you'll likely need to come back yourself as the tour moves along fairly quickly. Nevertheless, we still had enough time to enjoy all the sights before heading back to the coach. The tour guide also gave a lot of information for various scenic points, as well as some history about the island and locations found when driving around. There's a bit more detail in Spanish, but the guide does translate it into English afterwards. However, if you're a native Spaniard, you can enjoy some extra detail and nice banter with the tour guide. Finally, when driving down the mountainous roads, they are quite bendy. The driver was nice and experienced, so it's not like we had any problems going down, but if you suffer from car sickness or are prone to get nauseous on long trips or rides, this tour might be quite difficult for you to handle. We don't get carsick too easily, but even we felt a bit skittish as we were driving down. Just keep this in mind if you get sick easily! Anyway, it was still worth it as you'll be stepping out shortly for some fresh air anyway. Overall, the tour was great value as it's definitely cheaper than the other tours offered and still covers all main locations of the island on a nice coach. Honestly, I don't really understand how these guys get profit from this, but it's definitely worth it for an average sight-seer.

Wasted Time
Andrew_K
, Jun 2022
Tine wasted on too many pickups. Time wasted waiting for no-shows. Time wasted at first restroom stop because you can’t get 36 people thru the restrooms and the line for coffee in twenty minutes. Time wasted walking back to the bus, rather than having the bus come to us, after lunch. Time wasted waiting for people who don’t get back to the bus on time. Why does all the wasted time matter, because we only had 20 minutes at Mt Teide and that was not enough. We had 30 minutes at the Masca valley, which was 10 minutes too many. This would have been a much better tour if instead of running it with a 40 passenger bus they used 20 passenger bus. Less time wasted means more time at the points of interest.

I think the photos speak for themselves… I booked this tour with the idea that I would only see mount teide and Masca valley. Well, I did see those and so much more. The tour was amazing. We went everywhere possible and stopped at amazing food places. The views were beautiful and the tour guide (Alex) was perfection. He not only explained the history of Tenerife but he also made some jokes here and there that made the tour even better. Amazing 100/10

Fantastic day out. Well worth the money. Excellent guide with lots of local knowledge and a great driver who handled the barrier roads with ease. So much to see that I would happily do the same trip again. The full day trip just flew by! Sit on the right side of the bus if you get a choice.

Excellent trip, opportunity to see almost everything important on the island in very comfortable way. Ve visited more places and travelled longer trip than we expected. Skillful driver and very competent guide lady. Only negative that tour was translated into four languages which was annoying both for passangers and guide.

A great itinerary giving a real taste of the Tenerife landscape
MARTIN_O
, May 2022
I would like to have rated this five star and nearly rated it three but settled on four as the itinerary itself was very good and we enjoyed getting a real taste of the Tenerife landscape. The guide gave us lots of information and we really enjoyed each stop. The problem was that, as the day heated up the bus became unbearably hot. We asked a few times for the air conditioning to be turned up and although they did, the air coming out was not cold and it kept getting turned down. It really spoiled the last few hours and the final hour and a half back to our hotel was very uncomfortable, especially with having to wear masks. You could see everyone checking the overhead blowers. Our driver was very skilled tackling the very narrow uphill roads in the last stretch but just a shame the air conditioning wasn’t working properly.
