What To Expect

Depart from your Tenerife hotel in an air-conditioned coach and venture to the heart of Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounding the dramatic Mt. Teide volcano. Gaze at the 12,198-foot (3,718-meter) summit as you travel to Vilaflor, one of Spain’s highest villages.

Weave your way through the winding streets of the village then arrive at Icod de Los Vinos, a rugged region in which the legendary dragon tree thrives. Towering at a height of 72 feet (22 meters) the tree is reputed to be 1,000 years old; capture fabulous photographs beside the living legend then continue by coach to two villages cradled by the spectacular countryside.

Arrive in Garachio and admire the lava carved landscape from an incredible vantage point. See the spectacular scenery of Masca as you explore alongside your guide, snapping shots of sprawling greenery and mountainous peaks. Stroll around the streets of the villages and absorb their provincial charm, perhaps enjoying lunch in a rustic local restaurant (own expense).

Reconvene with your guide at a pre-arranged time then travel towards southern Tenerife through the captivating countryside of Santiago del Teide. Bid your group farewell when you are dropped at your hotel

The offered lunch (not included) may be an option, but for me it was better to stroll around alone.
All in all a good trip but the stops need a better balance

Awesome tour of Northern Tenerife
Deborah_K, Jan 2022
A full on day ..visiting some very interesting places ..our lovely guide was full of facts and figures and had to translate into 3 different languages even though we were only a small group of 8 !..our driver was brilliant too, negotiating the very narrow and windy roads around the Masca Valley which was stunning..shame we didnt have longer there to appreciate the beautiful scenery. Mt Teide National Park was busy as expected but we had time to explore the amazing area. It was a full day and certainly worth the money .. with someone else taking the stress behind the wheel!
Excellent tour and...

Excellent tour and knowledgeable guide. Every minute of it is breathtaking. I will be doing it again.
Fantastic Tenerife Island Tour
Denis_S, Jan 2022
The tour was great. A nice host who shared a lot of interesting information during the trip and a skillful driver who drove us through the narrow mountain rides towards Masca Village and the northern part of the island. The first point on route was Mt. Teide, which is the highest point in the whole of Spain. A beautiful spot with so-called The Stone Tree is something worth watching. Then there was a tiny little village of Masca that I mentioned above. Very remote and with fantastic views over the mountains and the ocean. And then we moved to the northern part of the island to see a couple of other charming villages of Garachico and Icod de Los Viños, where we had a traditional Canarian lunch just for 15 EUR. Great experience overall. Highly recommend. Don't forget to take some warm clothes, cause it might be chill up there at the peak.
Pushy guides and tourist trap lunch marr what should be a great day out
Emily_G, Jan 2022
Mixed feelings on this trip. Positives - the driver Martin was fantastic, dealing with many hairy bends in the road smoothly and confidently. There were also some excellent stops including the Teide National Park. However...far too much time was spent on herding people into earmarked shops for the 'hard sell'. It was pretty jarring. The worst part was the lunch itself. My friend and I had made sandwiches as we didn't want to purchase lunch but instead have more time to walk around, but we were told by Antonio the tour guide that we must come into the lunch venue and had no choice. He was really very aggressive. We said we wanted to have a walk around the local village while the others had lunch and he said we were not allowed to. The lunch itself is a complete tourist trap. Really low quality and disgusting wine. Viator are letting themselves down by these lunches and the pushy behaviour of certain guides trying to force people to spend more money.

Good trip .. not good advice
Stuart_S, Jan 2022
Great trip until we got left behind to fend for ourselves in Gerrichico . The operater at Antlantique buses didn’t particularly care or advise how to get back to Los Christianos as the time given was 1 hour later than pick up time , not made clear. Luckily I knew the of the area and managed to get the correct buses back minus 33 € .
A nice trip to...

Teide National Park tour
David_W, Dec 2021
Alexis did an excellent job as tour guide. As a native to Tenerife he clearly knew his ‘stuff’. The tour took in some beautiful views with plenty of interesting stops and some very dramatic roads. Great value and thoroughly recommend. D
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Brilliant. Many thanks for your lovely review.
Poor guide, poor choice of stops
Subhradeep_K, Dec 2021
Poor guide, no insights on the island or the national park. Poor choice of stops, only 2 stops were worth it but had very limited time. Would not recommend.
Quite good
Maggie_W, Dec 2021
Quite good. Even better if there is no souvenir shop in the beginning and a bit better lunch restaurant.
