Mount Teide Recommendations
What People Are Saying About Mount Teide
This tour was absolutely amazing. You see everything the island has to offer on the Southern, Middle, and Western outlooks of Tenerife. So worth every dollar and I would recommend to anyone. In fact, I recommended it to a random girl I saw on the metro after I landed. Our guide was funny, very informative, and answered the millions of questions I had about the island. Every place we went was both planned perfectly and offered the best sites. I would recommend this tour over the four hour one, due to the fact that the last place we went, or Masca, was probably one of the prettiest places I've ever been. You get to see outlooks of the beaches, mountains, farms, forests, and desert-like terrain while riding around in a cool Jeep. Do it!
The universe (and stargazing) has always intrigued man. To study the sky in one of the absolute best places on earth, on a crystal clear night, was indeed one of the best experiences in life. Our guide was key to making this an unforgetable night; knowledgeable, entertaining, entousiastic, and fun who managed to create a good atmosphere in the group and who educated us about the stars and planets as well as about the island Tenerife - the the people, the culture, the good, the vegetation, the history and the volcanic creation of this island. On the way up we enjoyed a nice dinner in Vilaflor. The whole tour was also comfortably and safely taken care of by the busdriver. All in all, a highly recommendable tour!
Trip itself was great, but had problems booking it while on holiday as I only have a tablet and my mobile phone does not receive apps (not a smartphone). Had to reschedule it as I hadn't got the info about the pickup time at our hotel. The local contact however was very helpful and sorted everything out over the phone. Very early start for us at El Medano, we were sitting on the coach for over 2 hours while picking up other passengers. I think two or three minibuses for the pickups would have made more sense. This is my only complaint!
Trip to the top and the fantastic view are really a must do and see. Some clarifications in advance on the reservation for the cable tray would have been nice.
