Hans was an exceptional guide throughout. His charming personality, depth of knowledge and breadth of experience made the whole tour more enjoyable. HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended to anyone visiting Tenerife. Night Skies Tenerife with Kieran Mynott - You absolutely rock!! Thanks for making our new year's eve special.

Well organized trip, friendly guides! Despite the entire group except us being German speaking, the guides made an effort to communicate in English with us, which made it more comfortable. The hike is physically demanding and not for people who are unfit. Some level of fitness is required to complete the hike.

Our trip was fantastic and Neil was an excellent guide to have with us in the car. The sights were amazing and breathtaking. It was definitely a highlight on our holiday here in Tenerife and I really recommend this trip!!

Amazing experience with lots of photos and complimentary hot chocolate included. Kieran was also very knowledgeable!

Excellent commentary, very knowledgeable. We went up on a very cold night, wrap up ski gear required!
