The best trip on the island :) We took several excursions during our stay and this was definitely our number one. It really shows that they put all their heart into organizing it and making sure you have an unforgettable experience. Without a doubt, Marina and her vast knowledge about the island really make it worth your time. We cannot stress enough how beautiful the chosen route is and how stunning the views are. If you're considering between the trips, you definitely should go for this one.

Excellent route with a good mix of hiking and driving (unlike many other tours), plus the idea of eating a lunch at the very top of the island is simply outstanding. The views from there will take your breath away. A big shoutout to Marina, the excellent guide we had the pleasure to enjoy the day with! Her excellent English, superb driving skills and knowledge about the island really made our day.

The tour was amazing. We had a wonderful time and learned a lot about this beautiful island. We were fortunate enough to have a nice weather and could have seen Tenerife from Pico de las Nieves. The guide was very friendly, helpful, informative and funny. Also props for the driver, she was very professional and knows the roads off by heart!

Amazing trip in the mountains, the guide was very interesting and knowledgeable about the island.
