The trip to Teide and the national park, with the sunset above the clouds, was brilliant and very impressive. A "must" for every Tenerife holidaymaker. Manolo was a great guide, was able to answer all questions and tell us a lot of interesting facts. He did the tour with me alone, even though all the other participants had cancelled at short notice. The lunch with the local specialties was also super, super delicious. Overall, I would rate the tour as very, very good, and would highly recommend it to everyone 🤩

Magnificent discovery, very clear explanations. A super friendly guide who knows perfectly the history of Tenerife's volcanoes as well as the local flora. Thank you very much for this very pleasant moment. I highly recommend !!!!
