Itinerary was covered all we wanted to see. I understand the guide did do his best to introduce all we needed to know. But a bit rush to listen the guide speaking in 2-3 languages when the scenery passed over from our coach.

We had an excellent experience with spectacular views and a great guide and chauffør. Teide, Masca and Garachico was stunningly beautiful. Only critique was when stopping for lunch in Garachico, we weren't pleased about the guided restaurant - the food didn't taste of much. But a lot of the restaurants were closed due to siesta or vacationing, so it was also difficult to find an alternative. But all in all, we were very happy about this fantastic wholeday trip, which costed us a fairly small amount of money compared to the views, we took with us home.

Excelkent overall experience. The tour guide was very knowledgable and the driver was very professional. The drive to Mt Teide didnt disappoint particularly as we punched through the clouds and felt like we were on top of the world well on Top of Tenerife. We could have done with at least an hour at the world heritage site of Teide to take it all in, as 30 mins was a bit of a rush. The village of Masca was well worth the windy steep ascent and descents not for the faint hearted! and the stop in Garachio was really nice. Seeing one of the oldest Dragon trees on the Island at Icod de los Vinos was brilliant. All in all this was an excellent trip and we would thoroughly recommend it.

Good overview of Tenerife! The tourguide and bus driver were organized and explained the areas/how long we had at each stop well. I would have enjoyed more time in masca than ~30 min because it is a lovely area. Check to see what time your pickup is before booking - I had a 7 am pickup for a 9 am tour

This tour was amazing. Oscar, our highly skilled driver, navigated the hairpin turns with ease as Chantel, our knowledgeable guide provided details about the area. If you want to explore the quaint villages forgo the arranged stops and coffee breaks and pack your own food and drinks. Stops are short

Antonio was an amazing tour guide and Claudio was one of the best drivers I've ever seen! Pick up was timely and even though we had to change buses everything went smoothly. Tony Antonio gave lots of useful information while speaking in 3 languages! and kept us laughing and engaged the entire time. Claudio had lots of twists and turns, literally, to deal with but he is obviously very experienced and handled everything amazingly. I would definitely recommend this tour.

I thought this trip was good. The guide was entertaining, informative and extremely knowledgeable. The driver clearly knows the mountain roads like the back of his hand. There were a few gasps on the way down from Masca. The only thing I would change is possibly the venue for lunch, it was an average place for a overpriced small chicken dinner. I would have liked less time at the wine tasting and more time at Masca. Myself and my wife enjoyed it all and would happily book with Viator again for our forthcoming holidays.

We LOVED the national park and volcano. It was so cool and like nothing we had ever seen before!! Unfortunately, we had a longer amount of time at our lunch stop than at the volcano. We were only given 45 minutes at the volcano, so we felt rushed and that we couldn't really fully explore because our guide kept talking about lunch the whole time. Would recommend extending the amount of time at Mt. Tiede for future trips.
