We were traveling to Tenerife from New York City and had such an amazing time on the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and let everyone do the hike at their own pace. We had amazing weather at the peak and it was one of the highlights of our trip!

They take you to Teide by bus. We were very lucky because the day was sunny and not windy and we were able to go up with the cableway. If this had not been the case, it would not have been possible to climb! You have to have luck and hope ... The route takes you on a very steep road after checking the documents and pass provided by the guide by the park ranger. The 700 meters that lead to the top are challenging for those who are not physically fit or have problems with their legs. Bring warm clothing because it's cold at 3700 meters!

very nice excursion, with a very friendly guide, who made the effort to speak a little French. the ascent of the 700 meters is very difficult, completely not recommended, with children but it's really worth it in my opinion, not enough stops to discover the landscapes but time was limited. to do
