Steffi Wasa great guide. Very knowledgeable and had good rapport with the people working at the park. Though we missed our initial time slot for the cable car (closed due to wind), she took us on an additional hike for an hour or so and then got us onto a later car when it was opened again.

Stefi, the organisator of the tour decided to move the excursion on next day due to wheather conditions. It was just perfect: blue sky, nice view and very well organized tour. She can answer any questions and make the tour very interesting.

Our guide spoke 5 languages and I really enjoyed learning some history of the island and the volcano. Tiedes National Park was beautiful and is very accessible for those with physical impairments. I would book this tour again!

This was a brilliant trip. organized really well nice small groups. Great information. Well recommended. Arrived early so we got the best out of the day and mount Teidi.

Amazing day out, Steffi was a fantastic guide, so knowledgeable but also really warm and caring, brilliant with our 5 year old who managed the climb.
