We extremely recommend this tour of the island. We were the only 2 people attending the tour (very lucky). Angel, our guide and driver, was extremely professional, funny, nice, knowledgeable (a real expert of the canary islands). The tour has been organized perfectly with clear communication and punctuality. Angel has also been super flexible in giving us extra time in places we particularly liked and also in deviating the tour to Anaga forest (after seeing everything about Teide) as that was more interesting for us. He gave us great suggestions to avoid touristic scams during the tour and enjoy authentic canarian places. Also, he was super respectful of covid measures. Well done Angel!!!

Super. Thanks Jamie! This excursion far exceeded our expectations. Everything was explained by him in an exciting way and we had many interesting conversations. He fascinated us with his passion and love for nature and volcanology during the excursion. He is very knowledgeable and has shared valuable information about the island. We were very happy with the trip and we highly recommend booking the trip with Jamie!

Jaime was a great guide, he was flexible with the itinerary based around my interests. He was very informative on the rock and lava formations and fauna and flora.i would definitely recommend this trip.

It's totally worth it! I will come back for this tour indeed

Angel was great, very informative and the tour was amazing.
