Really nice experience! Highly recommended! The staff picked us up earlier from the meeting so we didn't have to wait. We drove around the south part of the island (since that was our starting point) to pick up the rest of the people. Stop 1: Vilaflor, fantastic view, nice tranditional coffee, 15-20 min. Stop 2: Teide and around the volcano, interesting landscapes!. Stop 3: Garachico, photoshooting, 10 min. Stop 4: Icos de los Vinos, nice lunch, beautiful dragon tree, 1.5 h. Stop 5: Garachico (again), city walking and history. Stop 6: Masca, amazing mountainuous village, nice cactus ice-cream, walking, 20 min. The tour finishes there, but during driving they pass by other nice villages and banana plantations. Our guide was funny and gave many info for the history and life on the island. It was a realy nice scanning of the key places of Tenerife! I would do it again, but this time sitting at the inner seats of the bus since I am afraid of heights and Masca was a bit "scary" for me!
It was an excellent experience and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It was first week of January, so the temperature was around 0 degrees with strong wind - and the guide brought extra jackets for us without us even asking. The overall tour was well structured, guide was full of enthusiasm and knowledge. He gave us a lot of information and answered all our questions in very easy terms. Given the extremely cold weather, we finished the tour in just over 60 minutes as per our request but we could have gone on for a lot longer as the guide was very enthusiastic about astronomy in general. Apart from the cold weather, it was a great experience.
our guide was really kind and nice and spoke excellent english. wish i knew a bit more about the real activity though: we walked from the parking lot with the group a bit into the desert and stood there for the next hour. Our guide gave us excellent explanation about all the possible star constellations above us. strongly recommend if you are into astronomy and wanna learn about the sky. they also provide lights (although we didnt get one, even when we asked) and warm jackets (definitely a life saver).
Fantastic experience! Luke was our guide for the night and provided us with an eye opening opportunity to look closely at stars, planets and our moon with an amazing telescope. He was both inspiring and knowledgeable. We learned about the constellations and how to navigate them. If you aren't an astronomy enthusiast yet you will be by the end of this tour!
It was a great experience and better than other tours I have done. Bernard proved a practiced driver around the narrow switch back road from Masca. Julian our guide was very firm but fair. He was very knowledgeable about the places and history but unfortunately spoke a little fast to catch all of what he said.
