What people are saying about Arico
Pick up ok but we traveled for about 1 hour to pick up everyone. I guess it's typical in those kind of activities. It would be nice if we had made one or two quick stops before we reach the destination, in order to take a few photos. The mountain is great. The sunsef was nice. The guide was nice and helpful, explaining lots of things. The food was unnecessary, but this was the only available package we found online. It was gourmet kind, wasn't bad, but for me it was an unnecessary add up to to the cost of this activity. The stargazing was good but a bit short I think. We only saw 3 things through telescope. Could spend one or two more hours on that. Overall I was happy, could be even better of course.
Very good coordination before the hike, setting up timing and location for the early morning pickup. We made a couple of stops on the way to the cable cars, to see the largest pine tree in the islands and to have a coffee. Dario was our guide, and he was very knowledgeable. His English is excellent. Great commentary in the tour bus and also as we made our way up the trail. Only drawback was that the trail to the volcano top was closed due to icy conditions. I highly recommend this tour if you want to see El Teide.
our guide was really kind and nice and spoke excellent english. wish i knew a bit more about the real activity though: we walked from the parking lot with the group a bit into the desert and stood there for the next hour. Our guide gave us excellent explanation about all the possible star constellations above us. strongly recommend if you are into astronomy and wanna learn about the sky. they also provide lights (although we didnt get one, even when we asked) and warm jackets (definitely a life saver).
I would have checked 5 stars if the communication with the platform was not bad. It was very clear with the local organization until that GYG gave us 2 new different new hours for pick-up meeting... For the rest of the experience, nothing to add. The guide was very good, the walk also and the view at the top so unbelievable. We had chance because it was closed when we arrived but after 1h30, they opened the path to the peak and then, all was perfect.
Fantastic experience! Luke was our guide for the night and provided us with an eye opening opportunity to look closely at stars, planets and our moon with an amazing telescope. He was both inspiring and knowledgeable. We learned about the constellations and how to navigate them. If you aren't an astronomy enthusiast yet you will be by the end of this tour!
