From the minute I booked until the minute I landed, I was looked after very well. Everything was explained in detail of the paragliding trip. As I had never paraglider before, I was really nervous but I was put at ease. Was most nervous about take off but shouldn't have been. It was very quick and easy. Felix, my pilot was great. He was explaining things throughout the flight and kept asking if I was ok. It was so peaceful and felt like I was floating above the island. The views were amazing. The landing was so easy too. Just a few steps and we were on the ground. The photos and videos of my flight are crystal clear and a cherished memory of my time flying!! I can't wait to book again with Overfly Tenerife next time I come to Tenerife and I enjoyed it so and felt so safe that I will will book the acrobatic flight! Thank you so much for making me feel at ease and very safe. I recommend this experience to anyone. Young or old! I can't wait to book again next time I come to Tenerife.

The 8 minute cable cars took us up to near the very top of mount Teide, the views above the clouds were simply outstanding, worth every penny , we were left to explore these stunning views with the options to walk on trails either left or right to further explore the views down into the valley and the coastline, then after about an hour we got the cable cars bak down, plenty of time to get food and drink in the restaurant and use toilet facilities before we boarded our coach. The guide was lvly and gave us lots of interesting information about the history of tiede and Tenerife , its formation and plenty of panaramic views which will last us a life time . I recommend this tour to anyone visiting tenerife that do not have any health issues as the air is very fresh and thin up there not appropriate for anyone with heart conditions though please read the guidance information carefully before booking .

Couldn’t speak highly enough of this trip! The whole process was well organised and the owner of the company is passionate and helpful. We saw wales, turtles and dolphins, the whole trip felt really special. The captain of our boat was knowledgable about the marine life and also made us feel relaxed and created a fun sailing adventure.

Sehr guter Tour, so konnten wir den nördlichen Teil von Tenerife sehen- Puerto de la Cruz und Orotava. Oben war es bei uns gerade am Gipfel geschlossen, da es Eis am Weg zu dem Gipfel war, aber wir haben einen Trek in der Valley gemacht und war auch sehr interessant und mit fascinierenden Aussichten.

It was a lovely experience. I was contacted a day before my booking that the weather might not be good on the scheduled date so I went a day before. Boat ride was smooth. Enough drinks to go round and surplus. We saw the whales and some dolphins too. Lots of opportunities to take pictures and videos
