        Walking in Tenerife/La Gomera
        Just back from Tenerife/La Gomera having done six great walks with Andy and fellow walkers. Really enjoyed every minute with everyone on the walks. Many thanks to Lynne for the reliable organisation, as usual. Been on many walks with Andy over the last ten years and would encourage people that enjoy walking to book up for a walk(s). You will not be disappointed.

        Tajinesta
        I was recommended Andy & Tenerife guided walks by a friend and wasn't disappointed. Andy was very knowledgeable and told us all about the history of Tenerife and about the different plants, trees and birds and Mount Teide. Not forgetting the amazing Tajinesta plant! We had a fanastic day and will book with Andy again .

        La Gomera Hiking tour
        I first met Andy in Jan 2024.My first walk was the Wow factor hike which says it all. Andy was very knowledgeable and was very patient with my frequent questions regarding the terrain and history of the area. I did a further 3 walks in different ares of the Island as well..Andy always kept the pace of walks steady, which benefits all levels of fitness. It was during these walks that I learned Andy and Lynne organise a 6 day walking holiday to La Gomera,fortunately for me there were two spaces left. Lynne took care of all the bookings and itinerary which was a God send. My friend and I met some great fellow walkers who were in our group also We stayed in the Valle Gran rey area of la Gomera which had fantastic bars and Restaurants . We did 5 amazing hikes wurh Andy in the surrounding mountains and forests,and I would recommend going again with Andy and Lynne.

        A glorious walk with Andy, off the beaten track in the National Park. Wonderful views, plenty of photo opportunities and a real taste of the raw beauty of Tenerife.

        Amazing walk
        Would definitely recommend this trip. Well organised and a great walk. Andy picked us up from the hotel, we then drove around 1 hr to the start of the walk. Andy gave us options for the walk based on the weather conditions and group preferences/ability. We opted for a Beautiful challenging 9km walk with 700m elevation. It was tough but the views were stunning. The walk was very picturesque and Andy shared plenty of knowledge about the landscape and wildlife along the way. Andy is a great group leader and also has calf muscles made out of steel 💪 🍳 🍺 After the walk we got dropped off back at the hotel. A perfect day out

        Explore the less touristy side to Tenerife
        My friend and I hiked with Andy 2 years ago and were returning for another trip but wanted to see the Spring flowers and do a coastal walk this time. I contacted Andy via his website and easily planned an itinerary. I hiked on my own with Andy for the Spring flowers walk and can reassure any solo female travellers that you are totally safe in Andy’s company. The descriptions of his walks are not always accurately graded in that I would assume they all require a moderate level of fitness but the walks themselves do not disappoint. I have hiked 5 of them now and hope to come back for more

        It lived up to its name for sure!
        I thoroughly enjoyed the Wow Factor walk, and it definitely lived up to its name with the incredible views! There are some steep climbs and some unstable terrain in places but the pace is steady allowing everyone to walk at a comfortable pace and feel safe. Andy is very knowledgeable of the area and provided information throughout. A handy pick up and drop off service and small group hike made the tour an excellent option for a solo traveller.

        Great walk in Anaga!
        I thoroughly enjoyed this hike around the Anaga area. Andy gave us a choice of walks due to the weather conditions and the group decided to take the risk as we wanted to experience the rainforest and it paid off. The terrain was not too challenging, there were some climbs but they were definitely worth the incredible views. Andy is very knowledgeable of the area and provided information throughout. A handy pick up and drop off service and small group hike made the tour an excellent option for a solo traveller.

        Amazing once again
        AMAZING I hiked with Andy for the first time 3 years ago. Now that I returned, I contacted Andy immediately again as I was super happy already the first time... and so this time. A small group, amazing trails and like-minded people... I can't wait to hike with Andy again... but reservation well in advance needed, Andy is polular (yeah, rightfully)

        Hikers dream walks
        Absolutely fabulous walks, every one different, how there are so many different areas are crammed into this small country is amazing. Andy is your guide, he will pick you up at your hotel or apartment and take you on many different walks. You will need to be reasonably fit and used to walking, but the views are stunning. Andy is a closet expert on the history and of the flora and fauna. So get out there, don't just sit around the pool, enjoy the wonders of Tenerife.

        Breathtaking views and a great day out- a must solo or with family and friends😀
        This is the 4th holiday I have had in Tenerife that I have booked walks with Andy. Last week I was lucky enough to do 4 more wonderful hikes. Each walk has spectacular views and they are done at a pace that you can take in the scenery and enjoy a different side to Tenerife that the usual beach holiday maker never gets to see. Andy is very knowledgeable about all the areas he takes you to and has great insight into the plant life of the island. The other bonus of walking with Andy is that if there is rain in plan A walk he has plan B,C and D and so we walked in good weather when most of the island experienced rain. I have met some lovely people on these walks and most have been repeat visitors which speaks volumes as to how great this service is- see you next year Andy and Lynne🥾!

        Must do walking activity
        This is a must do walking/ hiking part or all day in Tenerife. Choose from easy ( some moderate fitness and definitely mobility required) to more and more difficult by asking for recommendations from the excellent receptionist. Andy collects you from wherever in the area and returns to same place. Take a picnic lunch and lots of water. You will be guided at a perfectly sensible pace and see spectacular parts of Tenerife a million miles from the playas. Andy is a very special man, considerate and safe. This is the fifth walk I’ve done over the years and as I get older and older I’m starting to choose the easier walks though they’re never easy , just perfect , having listened to my request I was allocated to the appropriate 4.5 hour walk 10k. Must do this making sure you’ve got some trainers/ walking shoes for sure.

      This was our third guided walk with Andy. His walks never fail to please. They are very varied and interesting. Some of the scenery and the views were breathtaking. There was a lot to experience and Andy is extremely knowledgeable about the landscape, the fauna and the flora. I felt very comfortable with the pace of our walk, the other walkers were always lovely and quite honestly I would recommend this company if you want a very happy and interesting days hiking. We will certainly sign up for more walks next year. Thank you Andy,

      Details about the hike (pickup time, location, items to bring etc) were well communicated in advance. We were collected from our hotel which was perfect and it was about a 40 minute drive to start of the hike. Good group size (not too big) and nice pace (regular breaks, time for pictures etc). Views were amazing, definitely a side of Tenerife people don’t speak about! There were two guides, Andy & Michael both really enthusiastic and very knowledgable about wildlife/landscape. Total hike time was about 5 hours, but didn’t feel long at all! I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a nice hike in Tenerife.

      We usually go walking with a group in Epping forest monthly. So while in Tenerife we decided on this hiking tour.
      At the beginning the first 3 hills for me were difficult but after that was manageable and very rewarding
      The views were amazing and Andy our guide was knowledgeable & very entertaining
      He took amazing photos of our day which he shared with the group at the end.
      Thanks Andy

      This was the first of three walks booked with Andy from Tenerife Guided Walks. It was a truly great walk - a few small ascents and then a fabulous ridge view out across the Masca valley towards La Gomera. It was a really windy day but Andy guided us skilfully and mindfully to ensure we all had a great experience. I took the walk with my husband but we both spent much of the time chatting to the other walkers which is one of the highlights of walking as part of a guided trip. Thanks Andy for this great introduction to walking in Tenerife. Thanks also to Lynne for being so helpful during the booking process and providing us with clear and precise pick up / meeting point details. We will not hesitate to book again when we are back on the island as there is so much to see and enjoy.

      Love hiking at Height! The views were spectacular on the “Masca from above walk.. Our guide Andy was very informative about the area. Our second time out hiking with this group. Used him two years ago also, for the “wow factor walk” which was also outstanding.
      Thank you Andy! See you again next year.

      I actually completed three walks with Andy during my stay in Tenerife. I have to say they were the highlight of my trip. I love walking but my husband doesn't share my enthusiasm, and so I was really happy that I was able to join in with Tenerife Guided Walks. Andy is really personable and knowledgeable, not only about the trails themselves but the flora and fauna and history of the island. The walks were all different - lunar landscapes, rocky pine forests and damp deciduous forests with lichen hanging from the trees. This island is an amazingly beautiful place and I'd like to say thanks to Andy for introducing me to that.

      It was the first time my mom and I booked a trip with Andy. He was amazing! He knows a lot about the fauna and flora and insights of the island. You'll see places that you don't see with a regular tour. I was afraid of hights and he asked regularly if I was ok. When it was a bit misty above masca, he even showed us some other amazing views to compensate! We had an amazing day!

      We did three walks with Andy and they were all excellent, but this one was outstanding. The scenery changes from arid and baking hot, to cooler shady forests. The terrain is variable as well, with some moderately challenging sections interspersed with well trodden tracks - we even found what might be the only mud in Tenerife!

      Tenerife has no lack of views but this walk has one after another after another - to call them breathtaking is no exaggeration.

      Andy sets a steady pace which gives everyone plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and his knowledge of the local ecology and history is a great addition.

      Highly (in both senses) recommended!

      The Teno Massif and Enchanted Forest was my first hike with Andy and was one of the highlights of my holiday in Tenerife. It was great to experience a different side of the island with its unspoiled nature and fantastic views of the Teide and Masca. Andy is a knowledgeable and experienced guide and took us on trails off the beaten track. I found some parts of this hike to be physically quite demanding (it took us around 5 hours and was ca. 11 km with quite steep ascents and descents), but it was worth every aching muscle. Thanks Andy for the memorable day. Hope to see you again next time I'm in Tenerife.

      Masca was the most amazing hike. We had superb weather with stunning views. Andy our guide was great from the moment he picked us all up. We were a group of 7 and the craic was great. My only complaint was i didnt find the website earlier on my holiday as i would have done more hikes with Andy. Highly recommend Andy to lead you on these hikes, you wont be disappointed.
