They picked us up at our hotel and dropped us back off. That was great especially being in a strange place for the first time. This excursion was fun. It was a beautiful view. We took paved side streets up the mountain through small towns. It was a dusty ride after we went off road. Make sure you have something to cover your nose and mouth and wear goggles. The guides were funny and friendly. They did not speak English well, and we did not speak Spanish, but we made it work. It was not a lot of forest to see, but it was nice. It was a mountain but not Mt. Tiede. If you like riding it will be a good change from the beach scene.
It is good if you prefer purely sightseeing tour with not too much info on the places. And better if you come with your own group of people (friends/families). Very little interaction with other tourists. They stops at lots of tourist centres for coffee and toilet breaks. Individual jeep driver cannot give explanation of what we are visiting at all. What happened was at every stop, they will gather all visitors from a few jeeps and one tour guide will give explanation of the places. The guy giving info is great. Group (combination of a few jeeps) is too big, I prefer smaller one for more personal interaction.
We did not visit one of the villages. Though it was planned. Our guide cancelled it without even asking people. He also was not good at all. We expected a more in detail information about the iland, its history, its first people and some explanation of the origin of the name of the island, etc. I suppose one can say that we may google the information if we want, which we did anyway after the trip we paid money for. The stops throughout the trip were very short. Just enough to take pic no time for admiring the amazing views. Would recommend people who would like the basics of the basics on the volcano Teide.
The island of Gomera is absolutely stunning and the tour very enjoyable. There are plenty of stops for photo graphs and the mountain top restaurant picked for lunch has amazing views. The only thing I’d warn people about is this may not be the right trip for anyone with a fear of heights as not only are some of the roads used narrow with passing places there are a lot of tight corners when you see how close to the edge of a clog you are and how far down it is. This also applies to lunch as most tables are next to the floor to ceiling glass windows and it’s a very long way down.
It might sounds a bit off, but I had not enough time to do the tour. However, they were so nice to offer me to reschedule the trip. Unfortunately, I did not had enough time to reschedule the Tour. It was absolutely no problem for them. The Costumer Service is excellent! No problems at all! They went above and beyond to offer me different options. The service was execptional. I highly recommend this Company. They responded right away, no matter, what you asked. I hope to do this tour in the future. Thumbs up ! Thank you.
