Teide Cable Car: Tours & Tickets
What people are saying about Teide Cable Car
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 .
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.
The trip was very well organised - we were provided with a commentary in 3 languages and learned a lot about the island of Tenerife and Mount Teide. We had 2 photo stops on the way back that were well selected for their views. We got the tickets for the cable car and were able to see the great view from the top. If I was to include the only room for improvement, it was that there was not enough time for us to even go to the Pico Viejo viewing point - we had 1.5 hours to take the cable car there and back, but the cable car including the queue for it took 30 mins each way. We had to turn around from the walk to Pico Viejo before we got there, and had no time to explore the other side of the peak.
This was such a wonderful tour. Amazingly friendly and informative guide Steffi navigated talking to people of different nationalities with ease. The bus journey was comfortable and we were very grateful for the early start- it gets incredibly busy at the cable car station. Be aware, the hike (it’s steep and rocky) to the summit may seem short in distance but the altitude makes a big difference. You have to take it slowly. Steffi checked on us all the way up which was so reassuring. The views and sense of achievement at the summit are fantastic. Thoroughly recommend this tour.
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.
