On this trip we stopped at a number of interesting places, we walked, had lunch at a local restaurant and swam on the beach with big waves. Our guide Jaime was very nice and we really enjoyed his company. He was approachable, talkative and very well prepared. He taught us a lot of interesting things about Tenerife. My husband and I travelled with 4 children aged 8, 10, 11 and 13 years. Jaime knows how to communicate well with children and they also found this trip very interesting. Although we spent the entire day with him, no one complained that they were bored. Everything can be arranged through Jaime; he is adaptable, practical and very organized. We recommend this trip to everyone as you will see many interesting things and you will learn a lot about the history of the island, culture, climate, plants and more. It was a great pleasure to learn so much about the Canary Islands. We enjoyed it so much that we arranged two more trips with Jaime. When it was time to leave, the children

I had a great time on my hike through Anaga. My guide, Angel, was really knowledgeable about the forest and had lots of interesting facts and stories to tell. We went on a route that avoided the main areas, so it was very quiet, a great opportunity to really appreciate the forest.

Fantastic kick! Anaga makes it easy because he is impressive but Ángel is an incredible guide. He adapted to us and gave us a luxurious night walk. If we return to Tenerife, we will call you insurance for another.

In general it has been a very beautiful route with a very friendly guide, my husband and I have gone alone and it has been great.

Everything was great - great hike, great guide and delicious food at the end. Highly Recommended.
