Thoroughly enjoyed the hike. Steffi our guide was really good, and none of us felt rushed and were all able to enjoy the hike at our own pace. Being a local she was well informed of all the sights we saw, and was happy to take photos for us as well. Would recommend this to anyone not keen to home up Teide themselves!

We were in Tenerife in October 2022 and had booked the Teide Tour. Everything was very well organized. There was enough time to enjoy everything, no rush or time pressure even on the summit. Our tour guide Steffi made the day a wonderful experience for us. In the end we were so excited that we immediately booked the next tour to Pirate Bay. Thank you Steffi. Greetings Elli & Ralf

Steffi welcomed us warmly and we drove a beautiful route to Teide. Unfortunately the cable car was closed that day. Despite this, we went hiking on the Teide. It should be emphasized here that we were there before the tourist rush, so we were able to enjoy the wonderful landscape. Back we could choose a different departure route. Steffi provided us with lots of information about the beautiful island. The excursion was very familiar (small group) and impressive - 10 out of 10 stars! ⭐️ Many thanks to Steffi.
