We had an amazing adventure (and sore forearms) on our tour. Our guide was really attentive to everyone’s needs and skill levels. This tour requires confidence and skill as you are spending a lot of time descending a mountain on steep roads. The winery was awesome, really enjoyed the wine and cheese. Loved that it was a small group

Very enjoyable. Salvador was very informative and went the extra mile to make it a day to remember. The wine tasting and food was great and we enjoyed a lovely sundowner

It was amazing! The tour guide really knew his stuff about mount Teidi. We had a really good amount of time seeing each place we stopped at! Would deffo recommend!

Unfortunately, the guide spoke very poor German. It was exhausting to listen. Otherwise, a good tour!

Fantastic day out! Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, and fun!
