unforgettable trip, beautiful views, it's worth going, MASCA's place in the park is really impressive, as well as driving along narrow roads along the serpentines of the park, A bit too little freedom to admire the views at stops, too fast pace at stops, the trip was supposed to start at 8 a.m. before we gathered everyone it started at 9 so we lost 1 hour which would have been useful at the viewpoints. I also do not recommend the proposed restaurant called CARMEN by the guide, The food is nasty, raw, unseasoned (the WORST!) the rest is ok,

Flott busstur på smale, svingete veier med dype avgrunner på sidene. Spennende landskap rundt Teide. Akkurat passe med pauser på turen. God mat på lokal restaurant (16€ pr person, ikke inkludert). Profesjonelt opplegg, god, morsom og kunnskapsrik reiseleder og dyktig og trygg sjåfør. Turen kan anbefales.

Absolutely amazing trip, the best bus driver ever seen, Carlos. The guide spikes fluently English and French and explains very good about all the places we have seen. Program was organised very well with pause to take pictures, have lunch in a nice local restoration or shopping for special local things.

Excellent experience. Joel Torres was an enthusiastic and lovely guide who fine-tuned the tour in accordance with our wishes. He shared his detailed knowledge of the Island in a very engaging manner and it was such a pleasure to spend time with him. Highly recommended.

Amazing organisation. Highly professional tour guide and driver . Interesting excursion in 3 languages (en / fr / al )
