The Capital are supper nice. They also patiently explained everything for us. Like the habits for dolphins and whales. And luckily we saw them with their help. The snacks on the boat also are tasty. Conclude: excellent experience. Really recommend.

It was very nice experience. We like it a lot. We were 2 on the same jetski and took turns at driving. The snorkling was fun as well. The 2 hour package is worth the money. It was beautiful scenery, espacially Mount Teide.

Everything was well organised, the lunch was perfect and local in a great setting. We got enough time to discover and the sides and the information was nice. I would recommend this tour!

Lovely captain and crew. Recommended for children, they will be fascinated. They could make discounts for families or groups.

the island doesn't have much to offer, but we still learned a lot of interesting things
