It's a brilliant tour to see the island's greatest highlights. From the moon-like rocky landscape in the Teide National Park, to various original villages and coastal towns, everything is really there. Above all, our guide Toni was also extremely nice, not only did he speak English, French and Spanish fluently, but he was good at it from time to time Tried German. Toni was just super likeable and didn't just rattle off a catalog of facts, but also talked really enthusiastically and beaming about the culture, vegetation and geology of the island, which is why we listened to him with pleasure and interest. In addition, it's really worth having lunch in the suggested restaurant - value for money can't be beat, it's nicely located with a great view of the city and the sea and also very cute. Another highlight: because of the good weather we could not only see La Palma and La Gomera, but also El Hierro

Fully recommend this experience, as it takes you through various parts of the island and show how different and interesting the island is. The tour guide Christopher was really entertaining and knowledgeable. I would only wish to have a bit more time at Teide park, as 30mins isn’t enough to enjoy this place enough!

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!

Picking you up directly from the hotel worked very well. The tour was just great! The Teide National Park and Masca are must-sees. Our tour guide was very funny and told us a lot about the island,

Super guide who has a good knowledge of the island and Mount Teide. For people who have travel sickness, I recommend a travel tablet. The bus driver only knows how to accelerate and brake hard!
