Full description
Once the pick-up is finished, you will leave the hotel zone behind, heading to the town called Villa de Candelaria. There you can visit its basilica, inside which is the Virgin of Candelaria (Black Madonna), who is the patron saint of the Canary Islands. You will also be surprised by the imposing bronze statues that commemorate the ancient menceyes (Guanche kings) of Tenerife, and constitute a national monument. We will continue the route to La Laguna, the first city founded in Tenerife after its conquest. This historic jewel was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. Here we will walk its picturesque streets that overflow with history and culture. The tour continues to the town of Villa de La Orotava in the north of the island, where you will take a walking tour of the historic artistic old town. Its streets, full of history and beauty, will take you to La Casa de Los Balcones, one of the most characteristic buildings of La Orotava, which houses an embroidery and costumes centre of the Canary Islands. We will continue with the visit to Garachico, a seaside town that was partially destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1706 and later rebuilt. It has a rich architectural heritage from the 16th and 17th centuries, very well preserved, which is why its historic centre was declared a Site of Cultural Interest in 1994. It also was included in 2021 in the list of the MOST BEAUTIFUL TOWNS IN SPAIN. You will have free time to have your lunch. Why not enjoy some Canarian cuisine by trying one of the menus that we recommend in the restaurants of the Ycoden Daute Isora area. On the way back to the south, we will pass through Teno Rural Park to visit the picturesque Hamlet of Masca. It offers one of the most beautiful landscapes in Tenerife where nature meets some of the best examples of traditional architecture in the Canary Islands. There is a change in the order of the itinerary for the Island Tour & Masca that departs from Puerto de La Cruz, which is: La Orotava, La Laguna, Candelaria, El Médano, Masca and Garachico.

The island tour was well worth it! Our guide (Juan) explained everything in Spanish, English and German. This made it possible to understand everything and his language itself was very good. We saw everything important in Candelaria, La Laguna, La Orotava, Guarachico and in Masca. The bus ride was very pleasant. You only had 30-60 minutes to explore everything, but it was enough. From culinary experiences, flora and fauna and the history of the island, everything was there.

Everything was perfect. Great views, the day went by very quickly despite the time spent in the bus, but I could not have done this route by car because you have to be used to driving in the mountains. Thank you to the driver who is pro and to the facilitator for the interpretation in French. Unforgettable day. THANK YOU

Very nice and interesting day trip

The pickup was on time and then we went to Candelaria to the pilgrimage church there with a short stop. Our guide Chantal explained the first basic things about the island. The highway went to Oratavia with its beautiful old town, then to Icod with its majestic dragon tree. Meanwhile, Chantal spoke trilingual about all sorts of things that had to do with the country and its people - very interesting! In between there were always small stops to take a breather, shop, take photos, etc. Finally, we went to the cliffs of Los Gigantes (land side), which lived up to their name. After that, it unfortunately went back again, because the hours went by in a flash. You cannot explore all of Tenerife in one day, but this excursion was great and made you want more!
