Everything went really well with the pick-up, there were 30 people but we were split up between 2 guides. We were with Chris, he really explained a lot about the plants and told us other interesting stories. Great, lots of little stops and 2 longer breaks, there was enough time for photos. Everything was very relaxed. As we come from the flat north it was a bit tiring, the ups and downs. But there was no time pressure, they just kept waiting until everyone was together. Thank you again and I can really recommend the tour.

An excellent days experience from pickup to drop off. From the drivers, ferry crossing to the guide (Lisa), for the day, who catered well for all different languages on the excursion. The relevant stops, including lunch, and interesting information provided was excellent and this trip is highly recommend.

Hector spoke fluently so many languages, was very efficient with the instructions, didn't forget anything and had so much amazing information in so many languages. I think he was the best guide I ever had. Thank you Hector. Super patient with us as well even when we were late. Thank you.

It was a wonderful boat trip: we saw dolphins and whales, we snorkeled in a beautiful place. A special mention to the Argentine captain Maxi, an extraordinary and good vibes person, who expertly guided us on the journey.

the guide was great, the Teide National Park very beautiful
