Great tour, passionate guide/driver Joel who shared his knowledge of Tenerife’s history with us. My mum and I were picked from our hotel in Adeje and thus had a great tour around the island to the North. Vineyard / Bodega Monje was interesting, a fascinating old building, the wine tasting paired with nice snacks was very good. They organise a variety of unusual events here., check their website. Lunch was at a local Guachinche restaurant Como en Casa, rustic, homely, very busy with mainly locals and excellent food including dishes with a heritage going back many hundreds of years. This was a wonderful tour, educational, cultural, combined with great wines and delicious food.

My wife and I had a wonderful day. The wine tour and tasting was very enjoyable and the venue has amazing views. Great place to spend a couple of hours. The wines are for sale but no hard sell and very good prices. We were

Pretty complex in Güimar with tropical gardens and pyramids. Very good explanations and presentation, as well as comparisons and theories with other pyramids in the world.

The waypoint in Google Maps was not very helpful, but the locals are probably used to that. First found, the exhibition was very interesting. I can only recommend.

very very nice place! highly recommended audio guide.
