Full description
After being collected from local hotels and apartments in the Puerto Santiago area our driver will take you up through Tamaimo and through Santiago del Teide across the Tene mountains to the Historic former Capital of Garachico. Here our guide will introduce you to the local history of this once wealthy capital and principle port which was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1706. The town was rebuilt but lost its place as the capital and main port first to Puerto de Cruz and subsequently Santa Cruz. The rebuilt town has many historic connections churches and famous statues that our guide will introduce you to. The lava that destroyed the town and port left beautiful natural swimming pools that are enjoyed by locals and tourists. The beautiful central plaza is a lovely place to visit as our guide explains the story behind this unique town. Then on to the town of Icod de los Vinos another typical Spanish settlement from the early 16th century where you can see the oldest tree in Tenerife the Drago tree before our final destination of the famous Museo de Malvasia. Here at this vineyard we have a different guide to relate to you the history of wine production and the techniques used to produce the famous Canarian wines made here. There is then the opportunity to taste different wines along with the locally produced cheeses and hams all served with fresh bread and local mojo sauces. We depart after this and travel around 45 minutes back to our hotels and accommodations
