Steffi Wasa great guide. Very knowledgeable and had good rapport with the people working at the park. Though we missed our initial time slot for the cable car (closed due to wind), she took us on an additional hike for an hour or so and then got us onto a later car when it was opened again.

Helpful guide who gave us lots of useful info both on the way and during the tour. Unfortunately cable car was closed so we could not go to the summit and instead did a hike around the Roques de Garcia, which is a nice hike but not what I booked the tour for as could have done that on my own. I enjoyed the day nevertheless, thanks to the team. It's just a shame the national park authority had to close the cable car due to the weather forecast (or rather the fear of being responsible for ill equipped tourists getting stuck up a mountain and unable get down). If you book this tour I'd recommend ensuring you're fit enough, and have suitable clothing and hiking shoes, snacks and supply of water - a couple of people in the group did not and struggled a little as a result. Get your guide has said they will refund the cable car ticket.

I had a very special day with my girlfriend. We were picked up by Steffi at our hotel and went with a small group towards the Volcano. A lot was explained along the way and we had already learned a lot. Steffi was able to tell us a lot about the historical and more recent developments of Tenerife. We went up with the cable car and first took a walk to the Pico viewpoint (and back). Then we hiked to the top. We were able to catch our breath regularly and our guide kept a close eye on us. It was fantastic to see the whole area like this and to be above the clouds. Tip: Bring plenty of food & drink, sunscreen and warm clothing!
