I had my tour in the middle of June 2021. Guide was great. I saw before this tour alot but places in this tours are so special. This tour is not only about volcanoes.. Ofcourse it's great chance to get to know different lava forms, get to know consistent, to walk on the lava.... Alot of new information about history, life style before descovery of Canarian Island and changes after, horozontal rain, forest recovery after fire, biggest and oldest tree of the Chr.Columbus time, traditions, culture, local shops with local pastry, stunning landscapes with hidden places of Tenerife.

A must

We have learned everything imaginable about volcanoes, the unique vegetation in Tenerife and its history. We were on another tour, we didn't get to see and hear as much as here. The guide is very nice. The tour was child friendly. Would recommend to anyone. I have never seen any of the places we have looked at in any other offer, such as a gorge or a quiet village. The guide is also flexible and responds to requests.
