What people are saying about Playa de las Américas

The guide, Benjamin, was very nice and he knew, as expected, many things about Tenerife, the Canary Islands and Teide National Park, he took the time to walk us through the history, geography and some local legends. Frankie, one excellent driver, very professional and careful on the road, we felt very safe with him behind the wheel. Benjamin and Frankie, thank you very much, we can't wait to visit Teide again with you. Unfortunately, although we enjoyed a sunny day, it was too windy and the cable car was closed but we saw some very nice places in the National Park and we honestly feel this trip was amazing as it was. The guide informed us how to get our cable car ticket money back. All in all, we spent a beautiful day on this trip.

Started as a great day out - our tour guide was full of interesting fact that made the 1.5hr journey to the cable car go by quickly. The volcano itself it incredible and the walks are very manageable in the time allocated. My partner happened to become very sick on the cable car on the way down but our tour guide was very helpful, allowing him stops for air and dropping us of first at our hotel. Despite his illness it was an unforgettable experience!

A great experience! A big thank you to Nayra who is a great French-speaking guide. You will be amazed with this excursion: pine forests, lunar landscapes, sunset at 2500m altitude, star gazing... I can only recommend this activity with Teide by Night 100%! Thank you again it was unforgettable
