About
West Tenerife’s landscapes are a must-see, but difficult to access independently without a rental car. This coach tour wraps up the main highlights in a day, with a guide to bring them alive. Cross Mt. Teide National Park, visit Garachico, see the Dragon Tree, and stroll in the mountain-ridge village of Masca. Transfers from North and South Tenerife make everything extra convenient, with just lunch as an extra cost.

What to expect
Leave your Tenerife hotel by air-conditioned coach and journey into the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Teide National Park, where lava craters and hills surround volcanic Mt. Teide. View the 12,198-foot (3,718-meter) peak from Vilaflor, one of Spain’s highest villages, and continue to Icod de los Vinos town to see its celebrated Dragon Tree, thought to be nearly 1,000 years old. After taking photos here, travel to the north-coast village of Garachico to take in its rugged lava landscapes. Then, head for the hamlet of Masca, where houses line a palm-coated ridge between steep-sided valleys. Stroll around both villages to savor their setting and atmosphere, and if you wish, enjoy lunch (own expense) at one of the restaurants there. Next, travel back to South Tenerife via the beautifully located coastal town of Santiago del Teide, stopping to admire the Los Gigantes cliffs (Wednesdays only) along the way. Your tour then concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.

We are having a lovely experience looking at the cockroach on our balcony because the company island excursions did not pick us up despite us being at the pick up point 20 minutes early. They lied to us that they had tried to phone us multiple of times.
I did not even receive one telephone call. The chance of an experience that we would never forget has now gone for me and my best friend.
So devastated for these lies and bad experiences with island excursions. Thanks a lot guys! Will never use your service again , cancelled all trips from their services.

This trip was a last minute booking for me & my partner and we both thought that it was outstanding! The value for money was exceptional given how much we managed to pack into a day!
Stops are frequent and all of them have things to do, whether it be getting a coffee, a tasting session or a photo opportunity of Mount Teide.
Bus was beautifully air conditioned so the trip was comfortable, even in 30 degree heat.
Masca valley is absolutely beautiful, even if the road in and out of it is precarious - credit to the driver who was excellent.
The tour guide was so knowledgeable and catered for 3 languages on our bus.
I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Tenerife as it really helps to break up a holiday.

This trip was very very far from my expectation. This 10 hour trip to Teide national park and Masca Valley was fantastic. The guide Peter was funny and yet full of information about the island and its habitants. I recommend this tour 100%. Its all the money worth and more. I really llok forward to go on another with Tripadvisor. Everything was 100%. Thank you Paul for this unforgettable experience.

We took this tour last minute and were so glad we did. Alex was a great guide who seemed to really care about what he was showing us. There were plenty of bathroom breaks and picture opportunities.
Masca was worth the whole fee. It was stunning but if you don't like heights, the drive may be a bit rough. It was both exhilarating and terrifying at the same time but our driver José was great! The only downside for me was that we didnt have enough time to fully explore Masca. I understand though that this trip was more highlights and if we stayed longer, we would have had to cut other stops.

The tour was long so we saw many beautiful spots with amazing views. However, i felt that we were always in a hurry. Didn't really had the time to drink coffee in peace or eat because the line of people was so long. The meal was good, it costed us 16€. The guide was very nice.

Be aware you must have a mask for this trip or you will not get on the coach!

I wish I could say I enjoyed the trip more but felt as if it was just a selling opportunity for the tour company. Firstly you are picked up very early and driven for around 2 hours to a cafe with a shop and encouraged to buy drinks to “help with the altitude”. Next you travel a further hour to Teide which was stunning, however you are only given 30 minutes to look around the base of the mountain, there is no opportunity to look around the central building or use the cable care before you are whisked back onto the coach and immediately taken to another shop/restaurant to be encouraged to buy gifts/drinks. This was around 4 hours into the trip and we had only spent 30 minutes at the actual mountain.

You will spend the majority of the trip on the coach so be prepared for a long journey. After the shop your are taken to a beautiful town where you are again very quickly shown the dragon tree with no time to look around the towns scenery and church, then taken straight to the restaurant.

The restaurant is 15 euros which includes 1 glass of wine (refills 3 euros a glass) a choice of soup as a starter which is simply water with noodles, a choice of meat with vegetables and potatoes for main and a small pot of frozen solid ice cream for dessert before being whisked straight back onto the coach.

Next your visit Garachico another beautiful town on the coast, you are again give around 20 minutes to quickly look at the natural pools leaving no time to explore the town which seemed rich with history. You are then finally taken on a long a bumpy journey up the mountain to Masca, we were told there was nowhere to get a good view from Masca and taken straight to ANOTHER restaurant to be encouraged to buy drinks. I’m leaving Masca there was a a fantastic viewpoint with shops which we were not told about or given time to seen. There is then a two hour journey back to the hotels. Overall we were very unimpressed with the trip and the driver of our coach. Maria the tour guide was good but as she had to translate between English and Spanish some of the tour became lost. I would recommend that anyone wanting to see the places on the tour hire a vehicle and visit yourselves, all of the locations are absolutely free so there is no need to pay the cost of the tour and you will be able to spend a longer time and really take in the scenery.

Sadly I would not do this tour again nor recommend it.

Thank you very much for your review. By law we have to have bathroom breaks which we do try to make it interesting. These coffee bars have their doors open free of charge to use the facilities in hope that some one may buy a coffee. We also recomment you take your own lunch. the food is typical Canarian. the soup here is watery with small pieces of pasta. It is not to everyones taste. However thank you for taking time out to give us a review.

For the price, this was an excellent tour. Yes you're travelling quite a long time, but the experience was fantastic. If you are stuck in Las Amerikas or similar tourist areas, remember there is a whole island out there to explore. This is a great whistle stop tour of the main natural areas and a Spanish town.

Teide was breath-taking and Masca Valley jaw dropping. I decided not to follow the rest of the group into the recommended Restaurant and explored by myself for a little over an hour at the lunch stop.

The Coach speakers were very quiet and couldnt be heard over the air conditioner when it was running on full. However that was the only minor gripe. The Driver and Tour guide couldn't be more friendly.

I was a solo traveller and had a great experience. Well worth the money.

The busdriver and the guide were very friendly, the landscape was amazing, there was enough time for taking Photos, maybe it is for some people too short.
At the morning you should wear a jacket.

All in all a very nice Trip.

I would highly recommend this trip but as a word of warning some places are not stroller friendly. We needed to carry a couple of times down steps due to no ramp and at least one more time due to unmanageable road cobbles.

It was a great way of exploring the island which otherwise wouldn't be easily accessible without transport or a brave driver.

Our first short stop was at an Aloe Vera plantation, with an interesting little talk about the slow vera, before the obligatory visit to their shop.

The coach then made its way through the park to near Mt Teide and had about 30 min to walk around and take in the is as well as plenty of photos.

Then we drove to a lovely town of Garachico where we had lunch in a local restaurant. Another note for parents with young children, there was no children's menu for my two year old grandson and neither was there changing facilities

Next, we went to Icod, a lovely old town where the famous Dragon Tree grows. We took a short walk around the town towards the tree and then got back on the bus.

Then a short stop in Masca stunning views could have been longer. The drive to Masca along a serpentine road, not for the brave hearted.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant, talked fluently in English and German (and I'm sure more languages as well but our tour only needed those two).

Highly recommended but not if you have a toddler
