The walk up to Teide was excellent and our guide - Benjamin an absolute star. It would have been nice if we had had some free time to explore the other walks from the cable car base station. It all felt a bit rushed.

An excellent, most informative trip, including a good three course meal en route. Our guide (Ozzy) was most entertaining and knowledgeable. He made the trip a most memorable experience.

The views and the stars were absolutely amazing and the knowledge they all had was incredible. Just for my liking there was just a lot of people but apart from that it was amazing!!!

Beautiful excursion, it is highly recommended. You should definitely do this when you visit Tenerife.

The guide Luz is charming, the driver is a good professional, I recommend doing this excursion.
