We booked permit to access the peak well in advance but didn't want to buy tickets for cable car online since our friend told us that it was canceled the day they went due to bad weather...so we went there on Saturday, 24 September, came about 10am (our permission to access the top was scheduled between 11-13)...there was absolutely no...

Good coach trip. Took in some of the sights as well as the top of the volcano. Not much to see but views though so half day was enough

We hired a car and drove up. With the windy roads it was far nicer to go ourselves. It also meant that we didn't have to wait in line and, although it was a bit packed it was a good service. It is a little cold up there and the air is a little thin so be careful. However, it's... More

I would recommend doing this visit independently. It would have cost us £54.00 plus the cost of the cable car ride of £27.00 each if we had gone on an excursion. We had already hired a car so we only paid for the cable car ride. The visit was brilliant. After entering the park we visited the Tourist information centre... More

We visited Mt Teide and it is definitely not to be missed. The views were outstanding at the top via the cable car. Did not have to wait too long for the cable car and we went with a coach trip from our hotel. This is a must see while in Tenerife..

Mount Teide is an absolute must when visiting Tenerife. We picked the most perfect day to visit, not a cloud in the sky. The drive on the way up was amazing, with all the scenic changes, but be aware the temperature drops as you get higher. We made sure we took warm clothing for reaching the top as the temperature...

We chose to drive ourselves there & did cable car, quite expensive @ 27euros, half price if you are a resident! You can do Fast Track option to save queuing but this can only be done online. You can arrive by coach,they do a day trip or evening which allows you to see the many stars. It's advisable to wear... More

We visited Mt Teide and it was beautiful. Didn't have to wait long to get on the mountain lift which was great. Once at the top it was literally breath taking due to the height your at! Views are incredible but the smell is less desirable. If your staying in Tenerife, make sure to do this as it really is... More
