What people are saying about Vilaflor, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

We booked this private tour so we could be picked up from the north of Tenerife - not many companies offer such a service. As it turned out, we were picked up on time, and the driver/guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and explained the background and the significance of the view points we stopped at, and the beautiful Teide Mountain. We really enjoyed the national park and the views.

Great excursion and inexpensive for a full day trip. Reaching Mount Teide by public transport from St. Cruz is otherwise difficult. Super beautiful volcanic landscape! Be sure to take a picnic with you, as it took us from about 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (although the description says otherwise). The restaurant where we were next to the Teide is not necessarily to everyone's taste.

The whole experience is worth it! We rented a double quad and switched on driving so the price was quite good (and whoever didn’t drive could enjoy the views). We went very high up and saw some amazing views of Mount Teide. The guides were very engaging and fun to drive with, also spoke a lot of languages, took pictures and videos of the group and made us feel safe. Recommended.

When you go to Tenerife, don’t miss this tour. Our guide Chris and our driver have been amazing. The Teide volcano is breathtaking, lunch was sumptuous, and Masca is a cute little town and wish we could stay longer. Enjoyed every bit of it. Also amazed about how our guide can speak multiple languages. Culture & nature tank, filled!

very very beautiful and the driver was so so nice explain everything
