Jaime was a great guide. His enthusiasm shines through. His local knowledge and ability to speak both German and English to a very high standard was commendable. He strikes a good balance to enable some free time during the trip. You can see that he really wants to give his clients a positive experience. I would recommend this trip if you want to see a corner of tenerife that most people ( probably ) don't get to see. He worked hard all day to ensure our happiness. The fact that he only takes small groups also helped. We didn't have to do a tour of lots of different hotels , picking up and dropping off lots of people beforehand. ( 5 in our group plus jaime ). I normally like to do adventures without paying for a guide, but on this occasion I was happy to do so. I have done a couple of trips with getyourguide and I find that the big coaches and lots of pick ups / drop offs in large coaches ruin my experience. Jaime is self employed and does everything himself. I recommend him. gracias.

Excellent experience. Joel Torres was an enthusiastic and lovely guide who fine-tuned the tour in accordance with our wishes. He shared his detailed knowledge of the Island in a very engaging manner and it was such a pleasure to spend time with him. Highly recommended.

It was really fabulous trip for the family like me got younger kids. Bassio showed us a lot views and tell us many information about teide. Really recommend:)

Jaime is an excellent guide & is extremely knowledgeable about Tenerife. We felt like we got to see a side of the island that few others do.

The perfect experience to start the vacation in Tenerife. Excellent guide, excellent van, excellent view We highly recommend this activity.
