We went on 2 walks with Andy, both of which were varied and afforded magnificent views over the Masa, Mount Teide, almond blossom, cloud formations and the coast. The walks were challenging underfoot due to the rocky terrain and gradient of the hills.
Andy took the walks quite easy which was good when we were walking up or down the hills but would have liked to have walked faster on the flat.
The weather changed all the time - hot one minute, windy and cold the next, then wet with low visibility when the cloud engulfed us!
Andy has excellent knowledge of the trails on Tenerife. Louise and Anna (his helpers) were excellent company on the treks.

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!

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.

I booked two hikes during my stay in Tenerife and I wish I had booked more.
My first was Guimar Valley and the second was Teno Massif and the enchanted forest, both did not disappoint.
Such beautiful scenery on both walks and panoramic views with lots of opportunity for some great photos. Truly appreciating the quietness and what nature has to offer. It was lovely to eat my lunch in these surroundings.
Andy is very knowledgeable so you'll also learn a lot.
I would highly recommend booking some hikes when visiting Tenerife. Even if it's just you on your own as I went solo but I met up with others.
Thanks Andy I will be booking more on my next visit.

Really enjoyable walk in the Teno Massif and Enchanted Forest. Andy is good guide, giving interesting information on the landscape and history of the island. I suspect he could probably do this walk blindfolded, he knows all the tracks and best places to see the breath taking scenery.

I was part of a small group, sevenperfumes2016 who has also reviewed and a very fit retired gentleman, who were all good company. Andy thankfully picked me up from San Blas which was a bit of a drive from the area we hiked in.

The 5 hour/7mile walk took in a number of different terrains, from dry trails to forests not to dissimilar to UK walks, then opened up to beautiful views of the Masca village/valley/gorge. The walk is suitable for anyone who has even limited hiking experience in my opinion (decent footwear essential), plenty of water needed as the temperature was high.

I will definitely be walking with Andy when visiting the island again.

Myself and 3 friends booked and completed three fantastic walks in Tenerife with Andy. We had three amazing walks all led by Andy himself. He has a broad knowledge of everything about Tenerife from flora to fauna and everything in between. Behind the scenes Lynne organised everything including our transport and was a total gem to deal with. I totally recommend Andy and Lynne and the amazing walking trips they provide. There's a lot more to Tenerife than beaches - get walking!!

Great hike in the Teno Mountains with Andy. 4.5 hours up and down through the impressive landscape of Tenerife. The goal was the impressive view down into the gorge of Masca. Always well protected and entertained by our experienced guide. An experience we will gladly repeat.

We went on two hikes with Andy. Very knowledgeable about the trail and both hikes were spectacular. The Wow factor was our favourite of the two, in the higher altitude with amazing views. A good pace set for the group and we met other happy hikers too. Overall, highly recommended and a brilliant couple of days out.

My partner and I did the Masca walk with Andy and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a small group of 5 in total which meant the pace was just right and you could chat with the other walkers. We also got the chance to add on an extra bit of walking at the end, which was fun.

Andy picked us up and took us back to the hotel and everything went smoothly. His knowledge of the island's fauna was particularly interesting and not something we would have known ourselves. Who knew Tenerife has 2 types of dandelions - but both different to the British variety!

Would definitely book another walk next time we venture to Tenerife.

I highly recommend this wonderful walk with incredible views across the Teno Massif, Masca Gorge, and beyond! Andy tailored the walk for us, kept a great pace, and shared his wealth of knowledge on the area and the rainforest. It was an extremely enjoyable way to spend a day on Tenerife!
