Really nice experience! Highly recommended! The staff picked us up earlier from the meeting so we didn't have to wait. We drove around the south part of the island (since that was our starting point) to pick up the rest of the people. Stop 1: Vilaflor, fantastic view, nice tranditional coffee, 15-20 min. Stop 2: Teide and around the volcano, interesting landscapes!. Stop 3: Garachico, photoshooting, 10 min. Stop 4: Icos de los Vinos, nice lunch, beautiful dragon tree, 1.5 h. Stop 5: Garachico (again), city walking and history. Stop 6: Masca, amazing mountainuous village, nice cactus ice-cream, walking, 20 min. The tour finishes there, but during driving they pass by other nice villages and banana plantations. Our guide was funny and gave many info for the history and life on the island. It was a realy nice scanning of the key places of Tenerife! I would do it again, but this time sitting at the inner seats of the bus since I am afraid of heights and Masca was a bit "scary" for me!
It was a great experience and better than other tours I have done. Bernard proved a practiced driver around the narrow switch back road from Masca. Julian our guide was very firm but fair. He was very knowledgeable about the places and history but unfortunately spoke a little fast to catch all of what he said.
The tour was excellent, great tour guide & driver, informative, lots of variety. one thing I would check is that they tell you to wait at a specific bus stop, that wasn't in our instructions, it would also help if they described the bus in some way as there are so many, it would just ease the stress.
We were blessed by our tour guide, angel. He listened very carefully and answered every question. He gave us so much valuable information. We laughed the whole day. He offered many options of times to break, eat and amount of time that we wanted to spend at each location.
Manuel was an excellent guide for our first visit to Las Palmas. He showed us a great variety of interesting aspects of the city and answered all our questions. Using taxis and walking was a perfect combination to see the city. Thoroughly recommended.
